This workshop enhances Dr. Drossman's lecture on Thursday and goes deeper by demonstrating ways to help clinicians enhance their communication skills and optimize their interactions with patients. The techniques discussed are easy to learn, readily applied, and offer greater efficiency in patient care. These skills will be important as our health care system will likely evolve to reduce reimbursement for procedures and provide greater emphasis in the use of these "cognitive skills".
The workshop will cover a variety of topics using several interactive formats: Interactive sessions using video demonstrations with audience feedback:
To provide techniques to improve medical interview data gathering
To demonstrate how to obtain relevant psychosocial information
To establish rapport and an optimal patient-physician relationship
Facilitated small group learning sessions
To enhance interview skills using role play with patient simulators.
To provide methods to manage difficult clinical interactions (e.g., how to manage anger, how to address requests for more tests or for narcotics
Take-home materials will be provided for further self learning.
Evaluation forms will provide feedback for future sessions
