What’s communication like between you and your patients and their loved ones while wearing masks? Are you finding it somewhat difficult to hear someone in a facility or hospital or office setting while wearing a mask? Are you able to read emotions accurately? What is it like trying to convey empathy when sharing difficult news?
Wearing face masks/coverings may be a risk reduction strategy that will remain necessary for months longer.
- What strategies are you or other members of your team using, or testing, to overcome these challenges?
- Do you have any ideas or suggestions that you believe might have positive impact?
Thanks for sharing in the comments below.
