Our Endocrinology, Diabetes, & Metabolism faculty member, Dr. Troy Donahoo, and 1st year fellow, Dr. Morolake Amole, presented their seminars on “Patient-Centered Approaches to Long-Term Success in Weight Loss”& “Integrating Pharmacotherapy in Patient Centered Approaches” to the distinguished audience at the Endocrine Society’s 100th Annual Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana on March 23rd-25th, 2019.
Their seminars were geared toward the doctor-client relationships established with patients dealing with weight loss management as well as the conversation styles that can be used to approach a patient about their related obesity issues. The patient-centered approaches were shown on stage as a live reenactment between the “doctor”, Dr. Morolake and a potential “patient”.
Persons involved in patient care are continuously immersed in varying situations. Informative and realistic presentations such as this one can bring forth important applications that can be utilized when improving or refreshing a provider’s communication skills.
