Today, Jody and I talk about relationship-building.
How do you help deal with or counsel a patient who distrusts you for reasons outside of your control?
How to build trust with patients 1. Reliability - Consistency - Speak their language, don't talk down to people - "Never believe that just because you have a degree, that you've earned people's respect" 2. Honesty - Sometimes, telling the truth can be awkward - Address the mental barrier- "Let's talk about the elephant in the room" - Empathy -- One of the most powerful human interaction -- Active listening -- "Put yourself in their situation"
