Fellowship Fundamentals: Communications - Chicago

Breakdowns in communication with patients, clinicians, or other members of the health care team are detrimental to patient outcomes and may lead to errors and/or increased liability. ISMIE loss data demonstrates that communication breakdowns/mishaps continue to be significant factors in medical professional liability lawsuits.

This interactive seminar is designed to help clinicians use appropriate risk management strategies and communication techniques to build rapport, express empathy, provide patient education and establish a partnership with all types of patients. Additionally, it will assist clinicians at becoming better at communicating important patient information during consultations and at points of transition such as hand-offs, on-call coverage and discharge.

This live event will take place in the ISMIE Michigan Room at 20 N. Michigan Ave., 8th floor, Chicago, IL 60602. For directions, please contact ISMIE directly at 800-782-4767 ext. 3300.
