Words That Transform the Patient Experience

Wendy Leebov, Partner, Language of Caring, LLC

The words we use to advance our patient experience strategies have a powerful impact on our aspirations, team engagement and our results. Language has the power to shift the conversation and is a key ingredient in transforming the patient, family and care team experience. In this session, you will find keywords that propel your patient experience conversations, instead of limiting your capacity for breakthroughs. You will also identify concrete language skills and words that enable employees and physicians to build relationships quickly and strengthen engagement and partnership and communicate with empathy and compassion to reduce patient and family anxiety and suffering. Participants will come away with strategies for engaging the entire healthcare team in choosing and using language that elevates the patient experience to a breakthrough level.
