Webinar: Improving Patient Adherence with Cost of Care Conversations

In this presentation, MCN will discuss a unique project examining the cost of care conversation’s structure, to see what content elements are actually delivered during the medical encounter versus what is recalled by the patients. The presentation will include a comparison of the effectiveness of the trained sub-groups (intervened) and the usual care (non-intervened) study groups. Long-term outcomes regarding the patient’s adherence to the care plan, and their reason for non-adherence, will also be discussed. Register here.
