patient and provider relationship

We’ve all had one: that person on your medical team that doesn’t listen to your needs and thinks they know what is best for you. Patients and caregivers can sometimes feel like they have lost their power due to well-intentioned providers not considering their unique perspectives. In this live role-play session, we will hear from a patient and a physician as they model different scenarios to help us all navigate the sometimes tumultuous relationships of patients and providers. We will leave this session with insights that we can all apply to our interactions with our medical team, turning what once made us feel powerless into power.
