Infographic: Effective Communication in Healthcare

Infographic titled 'Effective Communication in Healthcare'
Communication is a critical tool in healthcare. When patients and doctors don't understand each other, access to healthcare has been denied.
- Communication for patients with disabilities must be as effective as it is for all patients.
- Ask the patient what form of communication will work for them and offer appropriate accommodations.
- Accommodate patients' communication needs during in-person communication, written communication, and when providing electronic information.
