Patients and doctors both come to appointments with their own sets of challenges, ranging from a lack of a shared vocabulary for discussing symptoms to simply not having enough time during an appointment.
Dr. Rachel Dolhun, vice president of medical communications at the Foundation leads a conversation with Dr. Melissa J. Armstrong, director at the Mangurian Clinical-Research Center for Lewy Body Dementia at University of Florida, Patient Council member Carey Christensen and Parkinson's Community Advocate Mike Achin to discuss:
- Barriers that impede a productive conversation between doctors and patients,
- Solutions to improve patient-doctor communications such as bringing a symptom tracker, and
- Recommendations to ensure members of your professional care team are communicating effectively.
