How to Improve Doctor-Patient Communication

Monday, July 22, 6:00-7:30pm

The Hoosick Falls Armory is pleased to be welcoming The Center for Communication in Medicine (CCM), a Bennington, Vermont-based nonprofit, as it offers a workshop entitled “How to Improve Doctor-Patient Communication”.

After the success of CCM’s SpeakSooner® Community Education Program, ”When The Doctor Becomes A Patient” at Hoosick Falls Central School in April, many attendees requested a followup workshop on the use of the Difficult Conversations Toolkit, a guide to help facilitate communication between patients, family caregivers, and healthcare providers.

The “How to Improve Doctor-Patient Communication” workshop will offer the opportunity to view videos of actual patients speaking about the challenges in navigating the healthcare system, followed by a discussion aimed at helping participants become more effective in communicating their questions and concerns to healthcare providers who are facing increased demands on their time.

This workshop is FREE and participants will receive a personal copy of the Difficult Conversations Toolkit.

Space is limited — please register online  or call 802-442-5800.
