Interprofessional Communication:  Creating a Shared Vision for Patient Centered Care |  December 15th

Presented By:

Caroline Hurd, MD, FACP, FAAHPM & Lynn Reinke, PhD, ARNP

 

A team approach is foundational to providing holistic care that addresses the psychosocial, emotional, spiritual, cultural and physical needs of people living with cancer.  However clinicians often have limited training in deliberate, effective interprofessional communication required to meet these needs.  Poor team communication can result in distressing conflict, confusion, fragmented medical care, mistrust and treatment plans that do not align with a patient’s goals and values.  Clinicians who cross-train with other professionals in serious illness communication report increased confidence in their own communication skills, but also endorse increased understanding of other professional roles, improved collaborative climates, and more strategies to elicit the perspectives of their colleagues. Additionally, patients and families cared for by interprofessional teams with this training report improved quality of communication.

This 1 hour webinar will seek to meet the following four educational objectives:

    • Explain common challenges to effective interprofessional communication
    • Outline the TeamTalk framework for effective communication with interprofessional team members
    • Describe four communication strategies to improve interprofessional communication
    • Create an action plan to apply these interprofessional communication skills to your practice
