Communication Coaching

             for Better Healthcare

Good communication is essential to effective treatment.  


Understanding-- and being understood-- is important to everyone in a clinical relationship.  Satisfaction relies on it.  Outcomes depend on it.  Patients deserve it.  


Evidence indicates most Providers consider themselves good communicators, yet Patients often report different perceptions of Provider communication skills.  Why the gap?  And how can a Provider use simple methods to make dramatic changes in these interactions?

   

PRN can help.  We offer a variety of services in group and private settings, and new modalities of web-based consulting and video CME services, to enhance communication skills across the continuum of care.


Those who are good communicators are often the ones who are most eager to develop new skills-- they understand that even the best batters benefit from good coaching to improve their game. 


PRN is pleased to offer effective, convenient programs to coach customized communication skills.
