3 Fellows Course

All rehabilitation clinicians, across practice areas, need to be master communicators with patients.  Patient relationships across a care continuum are a vital component to effective clinical care and outcomes.  Simply educating and instructing patients is not enough to maximize clinical effectiveness.  Clinicians must help bolster patients’ internal motivations for change.  The method, context and verbiage of delivery is critical and as such we must consider the patient’s beliefs, biases, assumptions, and motivations in effective communication and patient care. Clinicians may not recognize the subtle messages they deliver or receive across verbal, non-verbal and printed methods of interaction.   During this course we will discuss the aspects of an empathetic and engaging encounter, which allows the patient to feel heard and understood in a way that provides an environment ideal for positive clinical progression. We will also discuss optimal ways to set the patient’s expectations to improve treatment outcomes.

Course Date: December, 7 2019

Course Time: 8:00-2:30 p.m.
