Preparing to Watch the Video Demonstrations

Please use the downloadable checklist and note how the clinician covers the three functions of relationship-centered communication. The checklist can be found in the resource section of the Yuja Video Player menu and can also be viewed beside the video. We strongly suggest you use full-screen mode if you view them this way. You may also download the checklist from the Yuja menu or via the link at the bottom of this page to have it in your files.

Three Functions of Relationship-centered Communication

As you watch the videos, please note how the three functions listed below are employed in each scenario to model relationship-centered communication at the bedside.

  1. Makes a person-to-person connection.
  2. Co-creates an agenda to address what matters most and a shared mental model of the patient’s illness experience by asking open-ended questions and responding with PEARLS.
  3. Collaborates to agree on a plan the patient can follow.

Additionally, we’d like for you to consider the exact words you might use to apply this skill with your patients. See the examples below outlined as PEARLS statements.
