As one of the core values of the Society of Breast Imaging, patient-centered care calls for breast imaging radiologists to collaborate with patients in shared decision-making processes to optimize patient care and satisfaction. This webinar will also enable attendees to recognize strategies for effective communications during biopsy recommendations and procedures, and provide tools for preparing patients for potential breast cancer diagnoses in these settings.
In these settings, patient-centered communications require an understanding of patient needs, goals and preferences; they also require skillful engagement in collaborative, informative and supportive discussions. While breast imaging has been the radiology leader in a patient-centered approach to care, there is a paucity of formal training in patient communications, leaving gaps for those already in practice and a need for specific strategies for current trainees.
In this webinar, moderator Dr. Mary Scott Soo, along with Dr. Stamatia Destounis, describe ways to improve awareness of patient experiences and perspectives in breast imaging, to set the stage for effective patient centered communications. This webinar will enable attendees to recognize strategies for effective communications during biopsy recommendations and procedures, and provide tools for preparing patients for potential breast cancer diagnoses, including a sample handout for patients awaiting biopsy results. Each webinar is followed by a lively Q&A session with questions from the live audience.
