- Prepare with intention: This would include familiarising yourself with your patients and creating a ritual so as to focus your attention before the patient visit.
- Listen intently and completely: This would involve sitting down, leaning forward, and positioning yourself to listen. Don't interrupt your patients as they are your most valuable source of information.
- Agree on what matters most: By listening to your patient carefully, find out what they need and what they care about. This should be a key priority in your patient visit agenda.
- Connect with the patient’s story: Try to connect with your patient. Understand their circumstances and what influences their health. Acknowledge their efforts and celebrate their successes.
- Explore emotional cues: Keep your eyes and ears open. Tune in and notice your patient's emotions. Understand their cues and try to become their trusted partner.
