“Towards an aware and shared patients’ compliance to treatment”
Objectives and project procedure
-providing the doctor with the elements needed to involve the patient in the treatment process, which will be transformed into a “taking care of” treatment.
-Giving her/ him the needed communication tools enabling to create new ways of relating, in order to transform a one-way doctor-patient relationship into a circular one shared by both of them.
– With this in mind, a mutually satisfactory relationship can be stimulated.
The above project involved our communication experts, a consultant specialist doctor and a small film crew.
“Being relationship-oriented means to us being solution-oriented”.
The complex treatment process derives its effectiveness from the quality of the relationship. That is the reason why it is so important to create a collaborative environment where patient and doctor, even though performing different roles, work together. In order to face the several patient’s resistances, it is important to learn how to dance with him, avoiding a tug-of-war pitfall . However, during the treatment, it is absolutely necessary to maintain a clear definition of the objectives to be pursued , possibly adapting them to the specific situations and availabilities.
