for Better Healthcare
Good communication is a partnership between Patient and Provider.
Doctors and other healthcare professionals are taught how to communicate with patients-- where can you learn to communicate more effectively with them?
PRN can help. We offer services that build communication skills for Patients, to strengthen the partnership between Patient and Provider.
