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.

World TB Day

Designed to build public awareness that tuberculosis today remains an epidemic in much of the world, causing the deaths of several million people each year, mostly in the third world. 24 March commemorates the day in 1882 when Dr Robert Koch astounded the scientific community by announcing that he had discovered the cause of tuberculosis, the TB bacillus.

Koch's discovery opened the way toward diagnosing and curing tuberculosis.
