Lecture 1: Factors related to ‘good memory’

You will learn the factors that facilitate memory after this part.

Real Application

We hope you are still staying with us on the learning journey.

In this step, you will learn the factors that facilitate memory and help patient-dentist communication, and identify the situations that influence the credibility of memory.

We will show you some interesting ‘tricks’ to help patients to learn the important message, and, maybe, help them to remember what you say.

Next, we will look deeper into the self-reference effect on memory and how to individualize the patient’s own condition.

Do you agree that all the responses to patients should be better related to their personal conditions? Or it is more convenient and easier if we treat them as ‘one-size-fits-all’?

You are invited to share your ideas with us and other fellow learners.
