Better understanding. Better Results.

Better understanding, better results.

Replace reluctance with compliance

How can you engage patients who are unwilling to try a new therapy or change their lifestyle?

What communication approaches can you employ to break through the barriers of attitude and misunderstanding?

This section provides communication and assessment techniques from leading behavioural psychologists. Select a communication approach specific to the behavioural and learning style of your patient to establish a rapport with your patient. Open the door to a receptive attitude and a willingness to embrace your therapy recommendations.

Understanding is the key to an engaged patient— a successful diabetes consultation involves both a healthcare professional who better understands patient communication needs and a patient who better understands their disease.

Achieving and maintaining good glycaemic control and motivating patients toward a healthier lifestyle requires a long-term relationship with your patients and a shared understanding of therapy goals. Structured SMBG can help you convert glucose results into actionable health information, supporting a more efficient and productive diabetes consultation and helping you and your patients:

  • Gain a better understanding of their condition
  • Identify problems with glycaemic control
  • Understand the risks related to glycaemic control
  • Make informed decisions and determine therapy changes
  • Assess the effectiveness of therapy changes.

Discover skills and techniques that can help you optimize patient interactions, resulting in better understanding, better patient response and better diabetes outcomes.

Learning styles

Feeling. Watching. Thinking. Doing.

All patients respond differently to the diabetes management messages you deliver.

Understanding your patients’ learning style preference can help you adapt your message and teachings to reach each patient as an individual.

Behavioural styles

Dominance.  Influence.  Steadiness.  Conscientiousness.

Add incentive, motivate change.  DISC behaviour styles increase your awareness of how your patients respond to your message.

 


“Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) should be considered because it is currently the most practical method for monitoring post meal glycaemia.”
