Course Outline

Be Patient: Understanding the Differences in Healthcare Customer Service

Most patients who visit a doctor or other healthcare professional would choose to be somewhere else if they had the option. Many people are unwell, some are terminally ill, some are worried about their finances, and some are witnessing the suffering of their loved ones. This opening discussion examines the service issues unique to the healthcare industry as well as the demands that patients and their families place on their healthcare professionals.

Being present and giving clients your whole attention

Nothing in today’s world of constant distractions communicates “you matter and I’m here to help” like giving someone your full attention. We will discuss what undivided attention in diverse roles looks and sounds like in this section of the program. Participants will learn methods for eliminating interruptions, establishing rapport, displaying empathy, and putting patients and their families at ease through a series of exercises.

Be courteous by acting with decency.

Great service providers always treat patients and their families with respect, regardless of the circumstance or whether they have earned it. The workshop part explains the rules of etiquette and the distinction between behavior on and off stage. Participants in this section of the course should establish a distinct understanding of what conduct belongs in the workplace and what belongs in one’s free time.

Be Proactive: Inform Others of Your Plans and Future Plans

The two pillars of proactive behavior are informing people and fixing issues. The anxiety people experience when they are kept in the dark and the annoyance they feel when obvious concerns are disregarded are also topics covered in this segment of the presentation. Patients and their families feel much less stress when they are informed about what to expect, whether it be about wait times, where to go to find a la, or an upcoming treatment. Additionally, people are more at ease when they observe the providers addressing such blatant issues as an overflowing trash can, an unorganized waiting area, or loud personnel conversations. Participants should have gained an understanding of the value of being proactive and what it appears to be returning to work.

Be Positive When Handling Difficult People and Situations

Healthcare environments may be hectic, crowded, unsettling, and stressful for both patients and staff. In this section of the course, we’ll look at challenging situations and ways for soothing agitated people, deescalating tense situations, and working toward workable solutions.

Be Resistant to Pressure: Stress Management

Workplace stress can be caused by juggling extra tasks, dealing with challenging patients, or trying to train a colleague in a short amount of time. Stress affects everyone equally, even those who are successful. The distinction is that they know how to use it. The course’s last section examines mental and physical strategies for being alert and professional despite a chaotic environment.

Participants should leave this healthcare customer service training workshop knowing the fundamentals of excellent service in a medical setting, the distinction between behavior on and off stage, and the significance of being present, polite, proactive, positive, and able to handle pressure on the job.
