3:10 PM Clinician Appearance: Put Yourself in the Clinician’s Shoes to Embrace Change with the Clinician
Clinicians can be stubborn, resist change and be anxious about their future when we change models of care. But we are all in the same boat – to improve care given to patients. It’s important to engage and motivate clinicians on an individual and team basis while moving to a patient centred approach. Learn:
- How to engage a GP (and group of healthcare professionals) to change a model of care delivery when they might not see the need to change!
- How technology/ data and evidence-based medicine promote changes in delivery of primary care to a patient centred model with a team based approach to care
- As we shift to being more patient than clinician centred, will GPs still have a major role to play?
