Quick and Effective Strategies for Engaging Patients in Treatment

 

Recent research and healthcare reform efforts highlight the central importance of engaging patients in treatment as a key factor in improving patient outcomes. The high costs of patient lack of engagement include inadequately addressed existing health problems, the emergence of new health issues, non-adherence to medication regimens, medical errors, deaths, disability, and more frequent use of high-cost services such as emergency department (ED) visits and hospitalizations, versus preventive and routine care. This course will provide an overview of strategies you can use to engage patients in treatment prior to their discharge from the ED, to promote greater follow through with discharge recommendations, and reduce high utilization of costly treatment approaches.
