It’s 9:00 AM and you are headed to your patient’s room where he and his family await news on the results of a recent test. Despite being optimistic, the outcome is not what anyone wanted. How prepared are you to communicate with your patient and his family on this? Would you like to be able to support the patient with empathy? Would you like to have the skills to develop a treatment plan at this critical moment?
A FREE online training module “SPIKES – A Six-Step Protocol for Delivering Bad News” will provide you with the tools you need to enhance your confidence. Videos are provided that demonstrate the application of this protocol and you will also be able to see patient/family reaction when news is delivered in an insensitive manner versus using the protocol. This online resource is available 24/7 and provides 1.0 contact hour under ANCC criteria.
