Programs for Healthcare Professionals

Lindsay Brown's healthcare programs provide communications and change knowledge and skills for particular medical practitioners. Review programs details below.

Change Management for Healthcare Worker
Healthcare organizations experience changes in methods, technology, leadership, and patients. This program is an overview of the change process. Program explores how healthcare resources transition from one phase of change to the next as an organization and individual. Communicating change to administrative resources, patients, and outside customers is addressed using scenarios.

Communications for Physical Therapists
This program is not about modalities, ultrasounds, or range of motion exercises. Yet, it is just as interesting. Communications for Physical Therapists is an energizing and engaging experience where Physical Therapists get back to communication basics (speaking, listening, and feedback) that are often neglected during times of long hours and high pressure situations. This program includes real-life stories where good communication skills saved the day.
