Astute Doctor offers evidence-based solutions to common doctor frustrations
Astute Doctor is a specialty provider of educational programmes and resources for doctors of all specialties and levels of experience. Astute Doctor focuses on the non-medical professional competencies that are vitally important for achieving best health outcomes for patients and reducing your risk of medical malpractice litigation.
Consider these situations:
- Have you ever felt a sense of failure because, despite your best efforts, patients don’t provide you with all the relevant information to make a correct diagnosis?
- Are you disillusioned by your patients’ lack of motivation?
- Have you felt annoyed by patients who challenge your expertise?
- Do you ever feel frustrated because your patients don’t seem to hear or accept what you are saying?
The underlying educational need in these situations is not to improve diagnostic skills or medical knowledge, but rather something much more elusive – the way you interact with your patient.
Fortunately, there is a science behind this professional competence known as interpersonal skills, and strategies to help you in these familiar situations can be learned and applied consistently. Astute Doctor draws on published literature to provide you with engaging and highly effective educational resources that take the trial and error out of relating to your patients, so you can achieve better patient outcomes, more often!
We invite you to take a look at ENHANCE, our latest educational programme. We think you’re going to really find useful the practical solutions it provides to some of your most challenging patient scenarios, and we hope you enjoy the learning process.
