This week, a client was telling me about a talk she’d attended at a recent DEI conference.
There was disappointment, but a sense of resolve in her voice, as she told me about this talk. The speaker had cited statistics on how little impact typical trainings have, when it comes to deep issues like unconscious bias.
My client was aggravated, but not surprised, at the dismal statistics. But she and her organization are determined to do better.
I wonder if at some level, we all know one-shot courses alone don’t help us make the change we desire to make.
If you read this site or listen to my podcast, it’s because you are a reflective practitioner. You are thinking carefully about how you provide care to each individual person.
You know that telling a patient something is not the same as teaching a patient something. You know how much patient education matters to outcomes, short-term and long term. You want to get through to every patient, not just some of them.
And you don’t have time for another course that doesn’t help you make the change you want to make.
That’s where Equitable Patient Education comes in. This course could change the way you think about your patient education–and it includes follow through so you can act on what you’ve learned.
“You are sharing things that can make our lives easier. That can make our days better. That can help people be more efficient so they get more done, and the patient knows more!”
Using the flipped classroom model, this course combines video-based and live learning to increase follow-through and application of what has been learned.
Participants watch approximately one hour of self-paced videos. There is a live, post-course group meeting when all participants have finished the course to allow for discussion, questions, and follow-through.
