GLIDE Patient Encounter Map
It isn’t something new, but as a recent patient, I was reminded of our Patient Encounter Map tool. Most people know us for our work in medical science, but our reach is the expanse of clinical care improvement, and effective communications with patients is of the utmost importance in caring for them. Our GLIDE strategy was promoted by the late and wonderful Dr. John Coombs of the University of Washington as an effective way to help patients: Greet . Listen . Inquire and Exchange Information . Determine and Decide . Effectively End. Happy Holidays, all!
