Love the emphasis on *building capacity* for patient efficacy!
From my experience, professionals also need to grow capacity as teachers who can see, use, and build on an e-Patient’s skill… transfer some problem-solving responsibility to them while still ensuring safe, quality care.
The model in the video looks interesting… the question is really *how.*
We’re talking about developing skills, which is very different from creating awareness or knowledge. The latter is fast and easy, but overpowered by current habits. The former is slow and difficult, but has the power to shape habits.
I think skills are created at the individual level, as a single person get reps practicing a pattern that teaches them a skill. Good coaching is vital for effectiveness.
Does anyone in healthcare have a program that gives patients deliberate, repetitive practice with coaching to help empower them?
Does anyone have a program that gives professionals deliberate, repetitive practice with coaching to help them learn to cultivate and leverage patient empowerment?
