Practicing Inclusive Clinical Encounters
What You’ll Learn
In the second part of this two-part learning activity, clinicians can practice the foundational skills introduced in Part 1 through three in-depth case studies that reflect the real-world complexities of caring for a diverse population of patients with serious illness. This learning activity will help clinicians build the confidence to integrate strategies for effective and inclusive clinical encounters into their daily practice. There are two clinical encounter tracks—physicians and advanced practice providers, and registered nurses.
This learning activity can help answer the following questions:
- What steps should I take to facilitate inclusive clinical encounters?
- What are some examples of questions I can use with patients to build trust and gain a deeper understanding of their background?
- How do emotional intelligence, motivational interviewing, and social determinants of health guide the creation of a continued care plan?
