Observations from the Bedside: Strategies to Create a Culture of Always

August 13, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am MDT

What can 1,000 hours of observing patient care at the bedside along with interviews of patients and their families tell us about managing their expectations and perceptions? In this interactive webinar, you will gain insight into what patients say is most important to them and how you as their clinician can create a positive patient-provider partnership.

Clinicians have a set of tasks they need to perform every day to insure quality of care with their patients. Brooke Billingsley will share the results of two large, “Touch Studies,” performed in a PCU and MedSurg unit. Brooke will also provide attendees with three easy strategies that clinicians can incorporate into their shift of care that will create a connection with every patient.

At the completion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify what is most important to the patient without adding more to your day.
  • Demonstrate stronger relationships with patients and improve patient engagement.
  • Discuss what clinicians should do regarding simple strategies that will have a positive impact on their patients.

Staff associated with patient experience survey results and improvement including executive team members, senior leaders, directors, managers and nursing and physician personnel.
