“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind” (Rudyard Kipling)
This quote is used in a thesis entitled Exploration of Pharmacist-Patient Communication in Clinic-Style Consultations Nicola Greenhill. Greenhill also points out that “research has shown that the use of good communication skills can improve patient health outcomes.” Her study concluded that “There might be benefits to patients if pharmacists develop and use communication skills that involve greater use of open questions, eliciting the patient’s agenda and exploration of patient thoughts, feelings and expectations.”
To improve patient outcomes in your consultations why not book onto one of the CPPE’s Confidence in consultation skills for pharmacy professionals (full day events) here in the South West.
Booking reference: 43935 (book online at www.cppe.ac.uk)
