Coach or Quarterback? The Physician’s Role in Patient-Directed Care

 

Why does the medical system sometimes fumble the ball when it comes to placing patients at the center of their own care? When explaining difficult medical decisions? When helping them voice what they want? Whether it be from the proverbial sideline or on the field, how can physicians ensure patients are placed at the center of (and take an active role in) their own care?

 

Join us on TUESDAY, MAY 8 to hear and speak with a nationally-recognized expert on moving the ball down the field when it comes to living well, the role of resiliency and the importance of social connection to health and well-being. Learn about novel research on how the words we use with patients often determine if we score that touchdown.

 

The evening will also be a celebration of Honoring Choices Virginia and the work the Academy has done in bringing the three local health systems together. Working together, so much has been accomplished. Come celebrate HCV’s accomplishments!
