Patient-Centered Information Gathering

Patients want to tell you how you can help, but often patients find it hard to explain the symptoms and personal issues that drive their concerns.  Your ability to listen carefully to where a patient is at physically and mentally, and ask the right questions at the right time, is crucial to understanding the patient perspective and working toward a solution that will result in the best outcome for the patient.

The Patient-Centered Information Gathering online CME course will guide you on how to uncover deep insights into the nature of patient symptoms, gather critical information to achieve earlier and more accurate diagnoses, and increase patient understanding for an improved patient experience and medication adherence.
