Risk Management CME: Patient Communication: Avoiding Adverse Incidents and Minimizing Professional Liability

The benefits of effective communication skills extend beyond patient satisfaction with the healthcare interaction. Communication also influences the clinical aspects of care. Communication improves the practitioner’s ability to make sound medical decisions. This, in turn, leads to improved health outcomes and may reduce liability risk.

  • Learn communication skills that improve ability to obtain comprehensive patient history and increase patient compliance
