The one about concordance
Length: 19 mins
Speakers: Sarah Gardner, Clinical Lead Tissue Viability Nurse, Oxford and Penny Rubio, Clinical Lead Tissue Viability Nurse, Oxford
“Jimmy Choos or compression bandaging, which would you choose!?” In this podcast, Sarah and Penny consider the issue of patient non-concordance, how sometimes the label is added unfairly, and hear how ‘motivational interviewing’ made the difference for Penny with some of her patients. Both of these lead TVNs agree that teaching patients about their condition may not be a regular part of a treatment plan, however explaining care options to patients and letting them have a degree of autonomy when it comes to their treatment, can go a long way to getting them on board, especially when Jimmy Choos are unfortunately not an option.
