HOW TO IMPROVE DOCTOR-PATIENT COMMUNICATION

Wednesday, June 19, 2019

THE CENTER FOR COMMUNICATION IN MEDICINE TO OFFER:

“HOW TO IMPROVE DOCTOR – PATIENT COMMUNICATION”

The Center for Communication in Medicine (CCM), a Bennington, VT based nonprofit, will offer a workshop, “How to Improve Doctor-Patient Communication” on Monday, July 22, 6PM at HAYC3 in Hoosick Falls, NY.

After the success of CCM’s SpeakSooner® Community Education Program, ”When The Doctor Becomes A Patient” at the Hoosick Falls Central School in April, many attendees requested a follow-up workshop on the use of the Difficult Conversations Toolkit, a guide to help facilitate communication between patients, family caregivers and healthcare providers.

The “How to Improve Doctor-Patient Communication” workshop will offer the opportunity to view videos of actual patients speaking about the challenges in navigating the healthcare system, followed by a discussion aimed at helping participants become more effective in communicating their questions and concerns to healthcare providers who are facing increased demands on their time.

There is no cost for the workshop and participants will receive a personal copy of the Difficult Conversations Toolkit.

HAYC3 is located at 80 Church St, Hoosick Falls, NY 12090.

Space is limited. Please click here or call CCM at 802-442-5800 to register.
