Healing People, Not Patients
A Continuing Education Workshop on Conversation in the Medical Encounter

Thu, 16 Nov, 2017 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Effective communication is one of the six “core competencies” that physicians are meant to master in residency training. Yet the hidden curriculum of time pressures, procedure-based billing, and overwork leaves little time for teaching this crucial skill. No wonder that patients report feeling dehumanized and devalued when their providers interrupt them, rush them to make critical decisions, fail to explain diagnoses and procedures, and misunderstand or ignore the real reason they have sought medical attention. On November 16, Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) consultant Jonathan Weinkle, MD, FAAP, will lead a continuing education workshop on building a covenant between patient and provider based on deep, respectful communication. Participants will be able to choose to hone their skills in agenda setting, reflective listening, or negotiating a plan of care. In addition, all participants will take part in a session on practice inquiry, a technique for exploring cases where communication has become difficult and is interfering with the provision of care. Dinner will be served. To RSVP, contact Ben Johnston at bjohnston@prhi.org. Please make checks payable to the Jewish Healthcare Foundation. In addition to his role at JHF, Dr. Weinkle is a general internist and pediatrician at the Squirrel Hill Health Center, a clinical assistant professor in the Departments of Pediatrics and Family Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and medical director of the Masters of Physician Assistant Studies program at Chatham University. His first book, entitled "Healing People, not Patients: Creating Sacred Relationships in Modern Healthcare," will be published in December 2017.
