CAI Webinar: Challenging Conversations with Patients and Families


Challenging Conversations with Patients and Families presented by Dr. Tim McDonald

Communicating with patients and families following unexpected patient harm can be challenging even in optimal conditions; it is a learned skill. Taking into consideration factors such as socio-economic status, religion, cultural preferences, marital status, sexual orientation and gender identity is important to communicating effectively. This webinar covers methods successfully employed by healthcare institutions to recognize, plan for, and communicate effectively in complex situations and with special groups.
