Working with the Guide 101

Working with the Guide 101, a free online workshop with Center for Communication in Medicine founder Dr. Bernard Bandman and primary care physician Dr. Michael Welther on Monday, June 22 from 6-7:30pm.

This workshop offers an opportunity to work directly with Guide chapters. Participants will view videos of patient’s recounting their own experiences, engage in writing exercises followed by interactive discussions and receive coaching from Drs. Bandman and Welther.

The Guide was developed to help patients facing serious illness and their loved ones identify and communicate questions and concerns to healthcare providers, leading to a better understanding of treatment goals and increased satisfaction with care. As Dr. Allan Eisemann, medical director of Rutland Regional Cancer Center, notes, “Physicians, nurses and social workers are more fully engaged by listening to and reading patient comments. The Guide opens doors to better communication.”
