Originally aired Nov 2 2021;  Feeling unheard seems to be a common theme nowadays, especially in healthcare. What can you be doing to not only be heard, but to also ensure your patients feel heard?

In this week’s solo episode of the Healthcare Provider Happy Hour, I will be discussing what you can be doing as a practitioner to improve this common theme, and avoid any misunderstandings. I share ways you can enhance your communication with not only your patients, but also with your co-workers, to ensure everyone feels heard and acknowledged.

Listen to the full episode to learn:

  • Tactics I use in my practice to be present and have open conversations with my patients 
  • How to use communication to avoid misunderstandings 
  • Ways in which you can demonstrate to your patients that they are being heard and acknowledged 
  • What to do when you’re feeling overwhelmed or rushed in a meeting, to ensure your patients still feel valued

Jennifer George Author, Physiotherapist, Podcast Host

At the onset of my career as a Physiotherapist (PT) in 2007, I also became a caregiver to my chronically ill father. Throughout my career and caregiving, I saw both sides of the healthcare system – as a clinician and as a family member & caregiver – and I witnessed the gaps in communication between providers and patients. Walking into a medical appointment with my dad was always a psychological experience and quite often, his healing and our outlook was mainly impacted by the quality of the interactions.

When my dad died in 2018, I was inspired to write my first book, Communication is Care: 9 Empowering Strategies to Guide Patient Healing, published in June 2019. I wrote this book with the intention to help healthcare providers enhance their communication skills and be able to communicate with patients in such a way that it would help their patients achieve their highest level of function, recovery, and independence. My book has received a few awards and was an Amazon Bestseller upon its launch.

In October 2019, I further launched my podcast, The Healthcare Provider Happy Hour. The purpose of my podcast is to support the well-being of healthcare providers so that they may create the best patient experiences and minimize their risk of burnout. I’ve released over 200 episodes to date and have had the opportunity to chat with like-minded people on a similar mission over the past three years from all over the globe.”
