Provider – Patient Experience Peer Training

Parkview Physicians Group is dedicated to providing a quality, patient experience, while reducing provider burnout. To support this goal, PPG offers a peer-to-peer communication and leadership training program.

  • Presence/mindfulness
  • Reflective listening
  • Efficient and accurate information gathering
  • Jointly negotiating an agenda
  • Connecting with patients and colleagues
  • Appreciative inquiry and debrief

We offer frequent workshops throughout the year. To learn more, please contact Tanya Hammon
