Connecting With Stories—Improving Patient Adherence and Compliance

Episode 11: Bridging the Gap: Conversations with Dr. Hall

1.00 CME

As every healthcare professional knows, the best drug is the one the patient will take. So, how do you improve your patient’s compliance and adherence to a treatment regimen? As Dr. Hall will discuss, the key to success is understanding your patient’s “world-view” and how they think about medicine and why many may prefer alternative medicine. He’ll share with you his secret sauce for engaging and motivating patients: clinical storytelling. He’ll even share the five ingredients that make that story convincing and behavior changing.

x-ray of a brain aneurysm

One in fifty people in the U.S. has an unruptured brain aneurysm, and one ruptures every 18 minutes. Despite low frequency, brain aneurysms are high in mortality, because the lack of a timely diagnosis often leads to death. Complicating matters more, many of the symptoms are associated with other less dangerous conditions, such as influenza or stress. This session will describe the importance of early detection, since brain aneurysms are treatable via proper identification, and will highlight risk factors and populations who are most vulnerable. Faculty will also review treatment options for clinicians to recognize or use in practice.
