Breaking Bad News®: Webinar series teaches skills for compassionate communication

Posted by MEDNAX on Apr 6, 2018 7:53:00 AM

While health care is constantly evolving thanks to advancements in technology, assessment and therapeutic treatments, medicine also now encourages a more holistic approach to the patient-provider relationship, including a focus on empathetic care giving. As part of embracing this change, MEDNAX is partnering with BBN on an educational webinar series titled Breaking Bad News®. This two-part webinar event, hosted by Anthony Orsini, DO, will teach critical skills for managing difficult conversations with patients and families.  

The overall goals of this webinar series are:

  • to become familiar with the history of Breaking Bad News in Medicine, and understand the effect of the lack of education on the provider’s self-perceived inadequacy and unpreparedness to discuss tragic news with patients and families;
  • to learn how to use the P.R.O.G.R.A.M.™ acronym to help remember the essential components of the effective and compassionate delivery of tragic news to patients and families;
  • to learn how to use effective and compassionate communication techniques to form relationships with patients and improve the overall patient experience.
