Can We Talk? How to Communicate With Your Healthcare Team


A breakdown in communication during a visit to the doctor can result in serious consequences. Communication involves the exchange of ideas and requires listening as well as speaking. Learn why it is important to ask the right questions, and discover tips to maximize time during your next visit. This program will benefit patients as well as their caregivers and loved ones who may accompany them during their appointments with their physician and healthcare team.
