How to build resilience in your patients and get better outcomes


How to build resilience in your patients and get better outcomes

Resilience is the ability to navigate and recover from challenges quickly and effectively. 

Our patients come to see us needing help recovering from and adjusting to Injury, Illness, or Impairment. As clinicians we will often be dealing with people at times of their lives when their resilience is most sorely tested. If they lack resilience it significantly reduces their capacity to adhere to our treatment and get better.

If we do our job well, we have the opportunity to build resilience in our patients and assist them back to health successfully. 

Resilience is not a fixed trait that people either have or do not have. It involves behaviors, thoughts and actions that can be learned and developed in anyone. If we can help increase our patient’s resilience, it leads to numerous benefits, and not just for them.

Empowering Hope, Creating Safety, Building Motivation, Supporting Implementation, Reducing Overwhelm, and Deploying Empathy in a clinical setting increases resilience in our patients. This workshop will teach you how to apply these in your practice.
