Description: The ways physicians are communicating with other physicians, advanced practice providers and patients have exploded — and may lead to miscommunication or a failure to communicate. Medical adverse events, delays in diagnosis or treatment, and medical malpractice claims have been associated with communication issues. Strategies to address risk areas of communication, both verbal and written (such as medical records, patient portals, texts and emails) will be addressed to help improve your communication in this ever-changing healthcare landscape.
