Updates with Impact: New Patient Experience Improvement Module

December 6, 2017
Today we released a new Patient Experience Improvement Module, available to residency programs using the emergency medicine resident Qbank. The goal of this module is to equip providers with the interpersonal tools to enhance the patient experience. Formal education on this topic is lacking in most residency curricula, so we are introducing this to spark a new era in medical education where humanism and customer service in medicine are given special attention.

Topics include

  • Sitting at the bedside
  • Showing concern for patient comfort and patient safety
  • Therapeutic interventions – Non-narcotic pain management and informed consent
  • Closing the Encounter, admission and discharge
  • Building up the team
  • Reviewing workup and results
  • Explaining what’s been ruled out
  • Listening and validating fears and concerns
  • Managing patient expectations
  • Communicating delays in care
  • Bedside transition of care
  • Professional attire
  • Timely communication
  • Patient satisfaction
  • And more…

We hope you will take advantage of this learning module.
