When you speak, do others listen? Patient care increases when we communicate clearly and effectively the first time. Valuable time is wasted when messages have to be repeated, or clients misunderstand our meaning. New brain research reveals that getting others to pay attention and remember what you have to say requires that you be succinct, compelling, and make an emotional connection.
