COR 10.05.21: Promoting Healing Relationships in the Age of Technology
Years of a growing administrative burden, complex electronic health record systems, and now the pandemic have left many physicians wondering how to get back the relationships with patients that drew them to medicine. This talk will offer practical solutions to connecting more deeply in this complex time. It is drawn from 5 years of work with an international group of scholars studying this issue
Physicians, Psychologists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners and Nurses specializing in Primary Care and Pediatrics.
After participating in this session, the learner should be better able to:
- State three reasons that physicians and other medical practitioners have become more distant from patients over the past decade.
- Explain three best practices for using the EHR during a patient visit.
- Describe three technologies that help patients to use technology to engage more closely with their care.
- Name three barriers to improving equal access to health information technology for underserved and marginalized populations.
This is a live webinar hosted via the WebEx platform.
