It’s tough...I just push ahead. Ultimately, if they don’t understand that I have their best interest at heart, and am committed to their well-being, they can go find someone else who will follow their demands. Means I just couldn’t forge the necessary therapeutic relationship!

Well then, you have every right to say “I know what you’re feeling” 👍🏽

“I know medical care can be costly. Have you ever or do have to forego appts or meds b/c you are worried about the cost?” I find myself addressing the issue directly. It would wonderful if I didn’t have to consider $, but I want to make a thoughtful and feasible plan for you.

5️⃣You’re setting a precedent for future visits each time you order unnecessary meds/tests b/c a pt demanded them. and 6️⃣You don’t tell a pt “I can understand what you’re feeling,” b/c you really can’t. Unless you have once been on the same “receiving end.” Watch your phrasing.

3️⃣Know that sometimes you need to sit in silence with your pts. 4️⃣Ask what your pt fears. Sometimes, all they need is reassurance that they DON’T have X. Always solve for X.

1/ : Gr8 session on challenging conversations with my . Highlights discussed: 1️⃣You’ve got to use the words that pts can understand. “ Yes, you have cancer.” Don’t hide behind Med jargon. 2️⃣Learn to talk not “Do you want us to restart your ❤️?”
