Communication is Key

Communicating with your patients is VITAL when it comes to making proper diagnoses and prescribing appropriate medications and treatments. However, as patients age, communication might be harder than before. To help cross this bridge, the Gerontological Society of America recently released Communicating With Older Adults: An Evidence-Based Review of What Really WorksThis collection provides tips to communicating with older adults under many circumstances, including patients with dementia, hearing, and vision impairments. More information for improving your interactions and face-to-face conversations with older patients can be found here >>
