“Patients who are treated with empathy and care suffer less and heal sooner.”


~ Piero Ferrucci, The Power of Kindness



“Patients of physicians who communicate well – by expressing empathy and concern, providing information on the illness and its treatment and encouraging patient participation in decision-making, for example – are 19% more likely to follow their physicians’ recommendations on medication, diet, exercise and screening than those patients whose physicians communicated poorly.”


~ Haskard Zolnierek, Kelly B.; DiMatteo, M. Robin (2009).
Physician Communication and Patient Adherence to Treatment: A Meta-Analysis. Medical Care

Practical, skills based communication training to assist clinicians who need to have difficult conversations with patients and colleagues in challenging situations.

Good communication is both a sword and shield. Effective interactions improve team function and can be a powerful motivator to improve health outcomes. Similarly, good communication can be a key defence against complaints and claims.

However, care often falls short of those goals. From domination-style management, fear and judgment-based practitioner relationships, and a poignant separation between physical, mental, and emotional care, the costs of these factors are enormous. One of the most effective way to evolve this problematic culture is to shift the language used by those providing care.
