Communicating With Your Patients

Effective communication helps your patients better understand the information you give them. It also may help bridge health care disparities. After all, research has shown that there are disparities in care for minorities, people from other cultures, and those with low-incomes or little education.

But simple changes can help you increase the cultural competence of your practice. By doing so, you can help overcome barriers to a positive patient experience and reduce discrepancies if they exist in your practice.  

Among other resources on this website, we've provided a downloadable toolkit. It includes lots of information and printable helps for your busy practice.
