CPSA Everyday Conversation

“How can we communicate better so that they (patients) can go on with their life.” – Darragh Murnane, University of Hertfordshire
Darragh discusses the importance of communication in the sciences and to non-experts. During the period of lockdown, Darragh noticed how difficult it is to navigate risk with disease, specifically how his parents were accessing health risks during the pandemic. Across the board, how do we improve communication and education for all patients? Darragh proposes education in communication skills early during a specialist career – ultimately helping the educate the patient, creating an improved situation, and creating a therapy, not just a treatment.
