Event description
Learn a simple framework for communicating more effectively with your patients to improve their outcomes

About this event

IT’S FRUSTRATING WHEN PEOPLE DON’T TAKE ON BOARD WHAT WE TELL THEM

We’ve all had the experience of someone just not “getting” what we’re telling them no matter how many times we repeat it

We get frustrated, the patient gets frustrated and the therapeutic relationship is strained

Reduced understanding reduces the compliance to treatment

It decreases the likelihood that the patient will attend follow up appointments and we lose the ability to help the patient

We have less satisfaction in our work which is important because none of us got into healthcare to get rich (or if we did then the reality was a rude awakening)

Communication is a two way street AND we're the professional in the relationship so we need to be ensuring that we are communicating as effectively as possible

IF WE CAN’T COMMUNICATE WITH SOMEONE WE CAN’T HELP THEM

  • The problem is that we’ve been taught all our health concepts scientifically. We get the scientific language, the peer reviewed studies, and the anatomical diagrams.
  • This is important BUT the challenge comes when we try and relay this information to someone without our training and knowledge – IT’S HARD
  • We’re trained to think about this information scientifically, but that’s not how everyone else thinks about it. We need to translate it into language that people can understand

"Most people don't speak medicine" - Rachel Callander

Enter the Science Stuff Said Simply workshops

They deliver a framework to help expand our understanding of healthcare concepts from purely scientific to humanistic.

It helps us take complex concepts and communicate them simply in language our patients can understand and act on immediately

These workshops combine theory with a lot of practical work in order to enhance our communication

The simple tools taught in these workshops are applicable for any healthcare concepts so you can continue to evolve your understanding and communication of all your vast knowledge of health

*Workshops are 3 x 90 minutes on March 8th, 15th and 22nd NZT
