Connection: A cohesive relationship is vital to patients’ compliance with a therapeutic plan of care and referring others for care. A cohesive relationship results from the therapist implementing intuition, creativity, and compassion into patient care derived from their own practice of self-development, self-awareness, and self-care.
Intuition: Execute superior listening and observation skills to evaluate and treat a patient as a whole person, not just a body part.
Creativity: Designing a creative therapeutic plan of care based on the individual patient’s needs and goals.
Compassion: Relating to your patient by seeing reality through their eyes helps you understand their condition better and guides in your rehabilitation approach.
Self-development: Improving patients’ therapeutic outcomes by focusing on being the best therapist and person you can be.
Self-awareness: Awareness of your emotional state and nonverbal language during interpersonal interactions is necessary in creating an open successful therapeutic relationship.
Self-care: You need to take care of yourself, in order to empower others to take care of themselves.
Increasing productivity, by decreasing cancel/no show rates and increasing patient referrals, is dependent on the therapist and patient connection. With the goal of achieving optimal rehabilitation outcomes, a productive relationship is created by the therapist using their intuition, creativity, and compassion to efficiently listen to and observe each patient’s condition. Intuition, creativity, and compassion are effectively implemented by a therapist that values and participates in self-development, self-awareness, and self-care activities.
