My Patient Presentation
Have you heard of an elevator speech?
In business it is a short description of an idea, product, or company that explains the concept in a way such that any listener can understand it in a short period of time (think 1-2 minutes!).
In healthcare, as a patient, My Patient Presentation (COREs Method) is the same concept, but for your health. It's your opportunity to share the details, descriptions and timeline of your main concern in a clear organized manner so that your Doctor has more time to spend in your visit to further learn about your individual concerns, preferences, beliefs and overall health and wellness. It give you more time to build a trusting relationship with your Doctor. Some patients actually state that when they present My Patient Presentation to their Doctor, they feel that their Doctor treats them differently, tunes in a bit more and may think "hmm, this patient cares a bit more about their health, and is a bit more knowledgeable than the average patient."
