Martin Harvey: Communicating to Improve Patient Care

Mon 21st and Thu 24th Nov, 7.30pm – 10.30pm

Do you find it frustrating that people seem to “get it” early on in care only to drop out before they have the results they need? Do you feel like you’re having to persuade people as to why they need care? Attend the Communicating to Improve Patient Care seminar, presented by Dr Martin Harvey, and you will learn concepts, questions and communication templates to upgrade your communication skills so you can help patients more and help more patients. They are based in the social science literature, are patient-centred and ethical, and are easy and quick to use in a chiropractic practice.

Attendees will learn:

  • That improving patient care requires communication strategies based on engagement rather than persuasion.
  • A patient-centred model based on uncovering clinical outcomes and goals that are meaningful to the patient.
  • Communication strategies that use the impact of the patient’s experience to motivate them to continue their clinical care and home-care.
  • Communication approaches to deal with difficult situations such as when a patient feels they are not improving or have had a reaction to care.

This event is a 2-part series that will take place LIVE on Monday 21st November and Thursday 24th November between 7:30pm - 10:30pm. 

A recording will also be made and sent to all participants.

CPD - 6 hours, certificates will be emailed to all attendees after the event.
