Mental Health SIG

Title: Managing challenging and difficult patients
Date: 30 January 2020 (Thursday)
Time: 6.45pm to 8pm
Venue: Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Annex 1, L3-N-M007 (Irrawady)
Course fees: Free for SAOT members, $10 for non-members

Patients become ‘challenging’ for a number of reasons. There are some patient characteristics that suggest the likelihood of difficult encounters. Similarly, healthcare professional attitudes can also create circumstances in which we are responsible for the difficulties. Being aware of factors that contribute to difficult clinical encounters and having the tools to deal with these situations when they arise can make for a better experience for both us and our patients.

Speaker: Pan Huimin
