Patient-Provider and Patient-Centered Health Communication (organized by HCWG)

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 4:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Healthcare providers are key resources for patients who communicate health information both orally and through written materials or other media. These communication practices can have a significant bearing on patients' health outcomes. This session will help audience members develop targeted, patient-centered approaches to facilitate effective patient-provider communication with a diversity of populations. Audience members will learn strategies for assessing and improving communication with a wide range of patient populations.
Session Objectives: Describe ways that healthcare providers can communicate more effectively with patients. Identify challenges to effective patient-provider communication. Explain several ways of assessing and measuring the healthcare communication needs of a diversity of patient groups.
