COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Apply communication strategies to deliver a high-quality patient experience.
  • Describe ways to maximize information delivery by keeping the patient’s communication style in mind.
  • Identify ways for the healthcare team to function more effectively through increased positivity and rapport.
  • Discuss methods to increase unity within the practice.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Using hands-on activities, instant feedback, and practical learning, the exercises in this workshop focus on presence, connection, communication, and collaboration. People are on their feet having fun and learning communication skills to build patient trust and improve teamwork to help achieve optimal patient outcomes.

Learn new techniques to ensure that your messages land with impact. Discover how to let go of what you want to say and tune in to what your listener needs to hear. This workshop provides you with the tools and techniques to be a better listener, a better communicator, and, ultimately, a better physician.

TESTIMONIAL

"We have received very positive feedback from audience members regarding not only the critical importance of the content but also how much fun it was to participate in the program. The presenters have created a “magical" method to train health professionals in critical communication techniques in a way that was so much fun, we were sorry it had to end. We will want to bring Ms. Merlin and Dr. Milman back to San Antonio for additional programs in the future." – Adam V. Ratner, M.D., F.A.C.R.
