Appendix C DB Communication Between Provider and Consumer
This discussion board follows a multi-step process. The students must collaborate in order to make it work. We all have health information-seeking patterns. Each must do his/her part and do it on time.
1. Wednesday – Students make an initial post on the importance of provider-patient communications. How is this important role of how behavior and communication take place interpreted and perceived? How can we as providers acquire knowledge about our consumers during our interactions with them? Discuss the dynamics of our interpersonal communication behaviors as well as how different cultural groups (ethnic, gender, economic) are affected by different communication (verbal and non-verbal) styles. Do NP’s and MD’s communicate with consumers differently?
Examples include but are not limited to: Communications with patients who are challenged by language barriers, physical barriers, psychiatric conditions, economic differences, power and control issues.
2. Thursday – Sunday: Students review the posts of their classmates, comment on classmates’ posts, and respond to classmates who commented on the student’s initial post. Thus, this phase of the discussion board is a conversation with at least 3 classmates. A conversation is an exchange of substantive information between two or more people that is specific to the content of the exchange. Posting a generic comment, like “I agree.” may be appropriate but it is not sufficient. Students must demonstrate deep thought and synthesis of issues relevant to the topic. The discussion board is time-limited to incentivize collaboration and assure that foundational material is mastered before introducing new
