Communication 101: A Video Approach to Help Clinicians Rapidly Convey Key Clinical Messages to Patients with Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction (DGBI)
Communication 101 is an innovative video learning tool for clinicians who work with patients having Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction (Functional GI Disorders). This program leverages the expertise of 15 thought leaders in neurogastroenterology to demonstrate how they educate patients with DGBIs on the most common clinical issues that arise in the course of a clinical visit.
After reviewing this program, you will be able to:
● Help your patient quickly understand their symptoms, disorders and proper treatments
● Cover a wide variety of complex topics clearly, thoroughly and concisely
● Maximize the likelihood that your patients will be satisfied knowing what they have and how they will be treated
Included in this program are 32 educational discussions, covering 11 content categories. Some of the topics may seem difficult to explain to a patient. Therefore, our experts approach each video demonstration with full knowledge of the content and provide the clinical expertise to interpret the information clearly and concisely using practical communication methods. The interviews are brief, only 3-8 minutes, and include a detailed written statement describing what was said and why. For some topics, more than one clinician demonstrates their approach so the learner can select which method best fits their style.
