The Benefits of Accent Reduction for Doctors, Nurses & Healthcare Professionals
Working in the healthcare industry, you have unique communication needs and a high level of responsibility. The ability for your patients to understand what you are telling them is crucial for them to make good choices in their healthcare and treatment plans. With the additional barrier of medical terminology that can already be difficult for patients to grasp, it can add further complications if you have a strong accent.
Accent Reduction for Healthcare Professionals
Accent reduction and modification for non-native English speaking doctors, medical students, nurses, and other healthcare professionals can make for clearer understanding, avoiding miscommunication and medical errors. This applies not only to patient/doctor communication but also in communicating to other medical professionals responsible for the care of the patient. Increase the quality and safety of your care with improved communication by reducing your accent with accent modification classes.
