Complex Patient-Family Conversations Pose a Liability Risk to Your Practice. Improve Your Communications Tactics at ISMIE’s Next ‘Beyond the Basics’ Seminar June 18 in Chicago

physician speaking to someonePatients and families often come to the medical encounter with preferences – and sometimes demands – regarding the medications, tests, referrals and other procedures that they need and want. If patients are not sufficiently persuaded that the medical team’s alternative is an effective and safe option, the likelihood of dissatisfaction, conflict and nonadherence rises quickly.

And that can add up to liability risk for your practice.

Beyond the Basics: Advanced Communications for Physicians and Other Clinicians is a popular ISMIE live seminar that offers a model of principled negotiation physicians can use to reach a mutually agreed-upon treatment plan that preserves the physician-patient relationship.

The event runs from 9 a.m. – noon June 18 at ISMIE, 20 N. Michigan Ave., 8th floor.
