with a mission to promote open communication. Describe what type of environmental restructuring you would implement in the office. If you are one of the doctors, what would one do to welcome or promote communication when visiting with your patients? Include ideas of nonverbal and verbal encouragement.
A doctor needs to sit down, ask open ended questions (not ones that can be answered with a yes or a no) spend enough time with the patient to allow him/her to ask questions and often times it is best to have the patient repeat back the instructions so as to assess the understanding.
This is just personal advice based on taking care of patients for 30 years, although I am not a doctor!
Thank you for your insight as I was thinking a warmed welcomed environment and sharing of small personal experiences withe the staff always smiling
