In this interactive and hands-on class you’ll discover what design thinking is, how you can use it to understand the problems that patients and their families face, and how to subsequently use this understanding to redesign care in ways that are more person-centred. There will be numerous case studies illustrating how design thinking has helped some of the world’s leading hospitals to transform their patient’s experiences, as well as practical exercises that will enable you to practice using design thinking to solve the real-life problems your hospital or clinic faces – such as eliminating missed appointments, improving communication between clinicians and patients, and reducing waiting times. Learning Outcomes: As a result of this masterclass you will be able to: • Define what design thinking is and describe how and why it can be used to transform the patient experience, • Describe each of the individual phases of the design thinking cycle and what takes place during each phase, and • Use design thinking to improve patient satisfaction by generating solutions based on a deep understanding of patient needs and experiences. Masterclass - Half Day Masterclass A - 18th March 2020 Time: 09:30 - 12:30 Description: Resolving Complaints & Dealing with Difficult Patients Healthcare can be one of the most rewarding professions, but it can also be one of the most stressful. Patients and family members can be uncooperative, hostile, demanding, disruptive, unpleasant, unrealistic and irrational. In this masterclass we will explore why interactions with patients and families can sometimes be so challenging, and then demonstrate and practice useful strategies for managing difficult interactions. We will discover the four fundamental variables that affect these interactions, which include not only the attitude and behaviour of the patient, but also that of the doctor or care provider, the effect of the patient’s disease or condition and the healthcare system itself – since limited resources, time pressures and interruptions all contribute to difficult interactions. We will use video case studies to illustrate practical strategies for handling a variety of scenarios such as resolving complaints, calming anxious patients, delivering bad news, and defusing potentially violent situations. We will use role-plays to practice applying the strategies in our own hospital or clinic. Learning Outcomes: As a result of this masterclass you will be able to: • Identify the four factors that drive effective interactions with patients, • Predict which patient interactions are likely to be problematic and understand the reasons why, and • Adopt effective strategies for managing difficult interactions in a wide variety of scenarios All masterclass participants will receive an IHLM Certificate of CPD Completion and both paper and electronic copies of the illustrated masterclass handbook
