Because your voice matters.

Patient Behaviour Change: Building Blocks for Success

  • This event has passed.

April 4, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


If only the patient would take the prescribed medication, eat nutritious foods, lose weight, quit smoking – the list is lengthy. Many health problems, including some chronic diseases, result from intractable human behaviour. Rather than blame patient non-compliance, however, health care providers have come to recognize behaviour change as a complex challenge that involves not just the patient, but also clinicians and communities.

In this free, live web event from NEJM Catalyst, you’ll learn techniques for effective behaviour change, what changes are achievable for better health, and which barriers to target. Conversations about behaviour change begin with the principle that clinicians should not assume they know how to incorporate patients’ values into medical decisions. Behavioural science has yielded insights into how to increase the likelihood of sustained health – and why some changes are extremely difficult.

Register today and you’ll also get a free copy of Measuring What Matters and Capturing the Patient Voice. Drawing from a round table discussion among clinicians, researchers and a patient advocate, and an NEJM Catalyst survey, this report provides a framework for defining the patient voice and integrating it into care delivery.

When: Wednesday, April 4, 2018 | 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. PT

It has been so rewarding to go from an idea to working with such a great group of dedicated people from so many different organizations towards a very fun and rewarding project. Several extremely engaged PVN members expressed interest in being part of piloting a patient virtual care peer support system. I am confident that this is the beginning of many more exciting collaborations!
