Enhance the quality of communication between doctors and patients, especially in the setting of difficult conversations or when surgical complications are anticipated or experienced.
Course will guide participants through a number of difficult conversations commonly encountered relating to cataract surgery including: the use of femtosecond laser assisted surgery, the ruptured posterior capsule, the dropped nucleus, post-operative refractive surprise, and the unhappy patient. Attendees will learn how to communicate with patients and their families in these and other potentially emotionally charged situations.
