Poor communication can damage a patient’s confidence in the interest, competence, and attitude of the health care team. When confidence is undermined, any complication or adverse result can lead to a complaint—and if the complaint is not handled appropriately, litigation can result. This one-hour webinar will address the issues that lead to patient dissatisfaction and will present strategies to prevent the errors that result from communication failures.
