Healthcare People Skills: JOIN us in #Peopleskills chat share your view.

WHEN: Sunday March 22, 2015 at 10AM EDT. Hashtag: #peopleskills

Background on This Chat Topic: Healthcare People Skills

How do doctors, nurses, physician assistants, physical therapists, medical assistants and medical technicians treat you? I don’t mean the medical treatments they give you. I mean how good are their people skills? Do they show empathy? Do they listen? Do they respond well to questions or rush about and cut you off? Our #Peopleskills Twitter chat explores healthcare people skills this Sunday.

My wonderful co-host is Dr. Gia Sison. Dr. Sison is a practicing physician, breast cancer survivor, and first Philippine leader of Livestrong Foundation. She is a powerful voice on social media about healthcare and healing. She faclitates the #HealthXPh Twitter chat and lends her voice to other online healthcare convos.

Healthcare People Skills: Do They Matter?

Do healthcare providers still care about bedside manner? Do medical, nursing, and physical therapy schools highlight it? Do they teach the importance of listening and getting the patient’s story? JOIN us in #Peopleskills global Twitter chat to explore healthcare people skills.

Some questions to get us thinking in advance. Actual questions will post live during the chat.

  • When you are the patient, how important are the people skills of those treating you?
  • What people skills are important in providing excellent healthcare?
  • What happens when medical office staff and those providing direct care have poor people skills?
  • How can healthcare providers & staff be more open to patient questions?
  • Think of the doctors you truly like and trust? How do they behave? Why do you like and trust them?
  • How do cultural differences impact people skills and healthcare?
  • How can everyone involved in delivering healthcare develop better people skills?

So bring your personal perspective, your favorite beverage, and join me and the people skills global chat community this Sunday March 22, 2015 on Twitter (hashtag: #peopleskills) to explore healthcare people skills.
