The event refers to the SPOT CHECK Methodology form, which you are encouraged to complete prior to viewing the recording.

As healthcare continues to be transformed, patient engagement is the change agent for improving clinical care, increasing revenues related to value based payments and patient satisfaction scores (HCAHPS). We as Health Care Professionals need to educate ourselves and recognize that our beliefs and attitudes, conscious or unconscious can have a positive or negative impact on: patient care and compliance; the patient experience; self-management; and health outcomes.

Learning objectives:

– Improve the health outcomes for the Elderly Black Population
– Increase empathy
– Respect and understand the individual’s cultural beliefs regarding their health
– Prevent judgmental behavior directed at patients
– Prevent disparate care
– Maintain patient dignity
