Bridging the Gap: Improving communication between patients with long term conditions and HCPs.
Communicating with patients about long term conditions where self-management is key (such as those causing chronic pain or fatigue) is challenging.

Learn about some of the common misunderstandings between patient and professional, and gain an insight into why these occur and how to address them, in this lively talk which draws on Hannah’s years of personal experience in self-management and creating effective patient-professional relationships.
