To support your work, use your course and text readings and also use outside sources. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
Start reviewing and responding to the postings of your classmates as early in the week as possible. Respond to at least two of your classmates. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale, challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between two or more lines of reasoning in the discussion. Complete your participation for this assignment by the end of the week.
Read all the information in these case examples of patient-centred communication.
For each of the cases you read, write a brief review of the barriers that may be present to understanding information and how the barriers were or were not overcome. Also, discuss how a provider would illustrate each of the three skillsets necessary for patient-centered communication (clinical, communication, and sociocultural competence). Make sure you relate each skillset to the specific recommendations on professional development for providers to gain additional knowledge to work with the patients in these cases.
