Episode 5: Where Introverts Excel in Healthcare Communication

November 6, 2019

Episode Highlights:

  • Drink of choice – Jade Citrus Tea (Starbucks)
  • I was fired up for this podcast because I myself am introvert
  • My analysis on why introverts were more classified as having a more difficult time with communication skills education
  • Does it really make sense to evaluate communication skills using a checklist when introverts strive for connection and meaningful conversation?
  • My recommendation: rather than assessing output of skills as they pertain to communication, assess for authenticity and connection
  • Repeat this over and over – in real time and live – inside and outside of the classroom – and become empathetic, etc. rather than “learn” it.
  • Pay attention to the patient’s engagement, rather than just the skill outputted by the student/professional
