October 19, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Even in the best of times, communication can be challenging. When normal circumstances are disrupted, the process of understanding and being understood becomes even more complex. What better time to explore ways to make communication more effective and satisfying?
Physician Communication Coaching is a specialty that provides tools for effective conversations in medicine. Doctors who use these tools report greater feelings of competence and satisfaction at work, and in personal communication as well. We’ll examine some of these evidence-based tools, and the coaching science that informs the way we share this information with physicians.
In this webinar, Pamela Nemecek draws on positive experiences coaching physicians and healthcare executives, and demonstrates how these evidence-based strategies can improve communication in personal as well as professional life.
During this webinar you’ll learn:

  • How Coaching Science informs best practices in Physician Communication Coaching
  • Lessons from telemedicine to enhance our communication online
  • Communication tools to make a more personal connection, even when wearing a mask
  • Coaching strategies for working with clients who have communication challenges
