Effective communication among providers, patients, and families is essential in healthcare. Patients who have poor communication with their healthcare teams are less likely to adhere to recommended treatments or complete diagnostic testing procedures and referrals, and they are more likely to miss follow-up appointments.These types of behaviors place the patient, healthcare professional, and organization at risk.

After completing this program, learners will be able to:

  • Reflect on effective communication among providers, patients and families as essential in healthcare

  • Understand the impact of patient factors, poor rapport and communication expectations between providers, patients and families

  • Discuss strategies to address inappropriate, threatening or discriminatory patient behavior and share with care team to enhance skill set for response
