Wellbe.me, the inventor of the cloud-based Patient Guidance System™, is hosting a complimentary webinar with Stephen Wilkins, MPH, on ” 5 Clinician-Patient Communication Gaps Compromising Your Hospital’s Outcomes, Quality/Safety and Patient Experiences.”
Wilkins will share with attendees a definition of patient-centered communications, provide practical examples of patient-centered communication skills in a hospital setting, contrast a patient-centered style of communications with the more traditional physician-directed or paternalistic communication style and share evidence demonstrating the benefits of clinician adoption of a patient-centered communication style and skills.
Wilkins will identify the top 5 clinician-patient communication gaps found in most hospitals, including examples along with how these clinician-patient communication gaps impact the patients, clinicians and the organization. The webinar will also provide strategies for closing the identified clinician-patient communication gaps.
