Overview and Purpose:
Key patient-centered care topics will be presented in 15-20 minute webinar segments highlighting provider and clinician perspectives while introducing corresponding resources and tools during the Provider Perspectives on Patient-Centered Care webinar series.
“Helping the Patient be Realistic” is the fourth webinar in the series. Most people struggle with making and breaking habits. Explaining the benefits of a change is the first step. Determining which intrinsic motivation will lead to a patient’s success is much more difficult. Discover basic communication tips for gaining trust and increasing compliance.
