  • Describe three ways that language can interfere with effective communication
  • Discuss how words can negatively influence teams
  • List five commonly used words/phrases that can be misleading, especially at the bedside
  • Explain how the word “denial” is generally not informative and often judgmental
  • Employ two methods that produce heightened levels of language self-awareness
  • Apply two methods to help IDT members with positive, descriptive communication

WEBINAR DETAILS

Healthcare workers often use two types of language, “backstage” and “bedside.” Typically, how staff speak about situations in the office is not how they talk with clients – or is it? “Your husband is terminally ill.” “Your wife is actively dying.” Are you certain the audience being addressed knows what is being discussed? What about when coworkers say, “This is a difficult family”? What does that mean and what are we to do about it? Improve the level of care with this worthwhile webinar that will look at ways to communicate more effectively both backstage and at the bedside.

  • Hospice
  • Palliative Care
