From theory to (clinical) practice

Health professionals discuss how they empower patients referencing characteristics and techniques by providing practice examples.

Watch the following video of two healthcare professionals, who were interviewed on how they empower their patients using the techniques proposed to make health-related information more easily-understandable.

After seeing the video we invite you to reflect on the practice examples given by these health professionals. What do you think of them? Are they something you could do yourself to empower people? Why or why not?

Please share other examples you come up with and leave these thoughts as a comment, and as always, look around the other comments to see if they feel the same about these examples or if they have their own examples you could use.
