Description

Health professionals need to learn the communication skills that will create collaborative and mutually satisfying relationships with patients. The failure of doctors to relate effectively to patients results in noncompliance, malpractice suits, longer stays in hospitals and other negative outcomes. Interpersonal skills can be easily learned by studying the techniques described by Gordon and Edwards. Using cases, interviews, dialogues, and vignettes, the authors provide effective models or blueprints for health professionals to follow.Gordon is a psychologist who has pioneered internationally recognized effectiveness training programs widely used by teachers, parents, salesmen, managers, and other professionals. He has published six books that have sold over five million copies in 17 languages. In this work, he has enlisted the expertise of Edwards, a highly respected medical doctor and educator, to provide the necessary insider’s view of the health profession. Together they make a convincing case for doctors to develop closer and more collaborative relationships with patients.

Editorial Reviews: Review “Strongly recommended for physicians and especially for office, clinic, and hospital staff caregivers. Patient advocates (ombudsmen) should find the style and content appealing.” ― Choice”[T]he authors suggest ways in which health care providers can improve skills in such areas as active listening, identifying and overcoming barriers to communication, dealing with conflicts with patients, and helping persons with terminal illnesses. The book is well organized and can be read quickly, and a busy professional can take away new ideas or expand on existing skills after a relatively small time investment. The book also includes a concise list of some of the best resources available for health care workers who want more training in communication skills. . . . [T]he book is an easy-to-read summary of an approach to communicating with patients. It can reinvigorate physicians who already believe that the physician-patient relationship is a powerful tool, and it can inspire those who seek more collaboration with patients.” ― Annals of Internal Medicine”This is a useful book that will help healthcare practitioners at all levels sharpen their communication skills and, in doing so, encourage a trusting, collaborative relationship with the patient. The authors remind us that our primary goal in healthcare is to care for and comfort our patients.” ― Doody’s Journal Review No medic who cares about patients can afford to miss this remarkable book. It uses both data and personal insight to define the chief barrier between patient and doctor. No other book I’ve ever seen or heard about comes close to the job this one does. — T.

Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:

⭐Loved this. Probably more radical at the time it was first written and now more mainstream, but still has huge value (in my opinion,) in teaching about effective communication and relationships between medical staff and patients.

⭐eventually I’ve got it…

⭐My book was just as the seller stated! In great condition and fast shipping! Thank you =)
