Caregiver and Physician Conversations – eCareDiary is thrilled to continue our monthly series with Margery Pabst, a leading voice in the field of eldercare. Each month Margery hosts a new segment for “Caregiver and Physician Conversations,” providing a forum for caregivers and physicians to discuss the challenging situations that confront patients and families, providing a model for family and professional caregivers to discuss critical issues, family stress points and options for providing the best care to patients, especially when a family member is in a care facility such as a hospital or nursing home.

This month's guest will be Edward Leigh, MA, and Founder of The Center for Healthcare Communication. The Center for Healthcare Communication focuses on  improving communication between healthcare professionals and patients; the Center also works to enhance communication between healthcare professionals.  Effective communication results in increased patient safety and a lower risk of medical errors. They also offer high-impact training, consulting and one-on-one coaching.

Ms. Pabst is an author, facilitator and national speaker. She is the co-author of “Enrich Your Caregiving Journey,” a book selected by Today’s Caregiver Magazine for the 2010 Caregiver Friendly Award. Her work has expanded to collaborating with physicians on identifying patient/caregiver emotional needs and values, a critical part of the healing process.
