  • Engaging Your Patients: Surefire Strategies to Raise Patient Satisfaction, Decrease Miscommunication Errors and Dramatically Enhance Compliance! - The patients are the reason we are here; they are the customers. This high-energy program provides practical solutions to create an environment where the needs of the patients always come first. Learn what to say to patients - and what NEVER to say to patients! This program will empower you with skills to dramatically improve the quality of interactions with patients to enhance the patient experience. You will learn: tools to tap into the psychosocial domain, top-notch interviewing skills, shared decision-making (partnering with patients) and highly effective methods of educating patients with impact!

  • Patient-Centered Care: Creating an Environment of Service Excellence to Dramatically Improve Care and Compliance! - Reduce costs and increase productivity by engaging an entity that is often grossly under-utilized in healthcare -- the patient! Multiple studies have found that well-informed patients who are an active part of the treatment process have better outcomes and save the system money. Everyone's health improves -- the patient's physical health and your financial health!

    This high-energy program will provide practical solutions to create a culture where the needs of the patient are always the first priority. The tips create immediate change - you won't have to wait years to see these results! A major emphasis is on shared decision making. Healthcare is not about giving orders, it is about partnering with patients to develop a mutually agreed upon plan. When patients are part of the decision-making process, they have a vested interest in following through on the treatment plan.

  • Educating Patients with Impact Powerful Strategies to Select and Deliver Information How to Give it so They Get it! - Be prepared for an explosion of information on how to educate patients! This program will provide specific and easy to implement strategies to help ALL clinicians provide information in a clear manner that patients can understand. In spite of the wonderful educational tools we have at our disposal (e.g., plastic models, brochures, etc), patient education is one of weakest areas in healthcare. That is about to change - through this program! You will learn new exciting ways of teaching your patients and methods to determine if learning took place! The powerful tips presented will have an immediate impact on your patients.

    "Do you understand?" is a question that tells you nothing! Just because a patient says, "yes," is no indication learning has taken place. Attend this program to learn educational techniques that work!
