Each year, the Society of OB/GYN Hospitalists (SOGH) holds an Annual Clinical Meeting bringing together physicians, midwives and others who support the OB/GYN hospitalist model. It’s a great opportunity for OB hospitalists to enrich their knowledge and connect with peers.
OBHG’s Dr. Nicolai Hinds writes about the medical illiteracy epidemic in Kevin MD. He offers the following advice to physicians:
“While it’s important to explain the diagnosis and treatment options to our patients, it’s equally, if not more important for us to ensure that they understand what we’re saying to them. Be it asking for confirmation, gaining trust to help them know it’s OK to ask questions, or making ourselves vulnerable to help them feel safe, hospital-based physicians should call on our emotional intuition on health literacy to ensure that the excellent care we are delivering in the hospital continues to have good effect outside of the hospital as well, when that patient goes home.”
Dr. Alissa Erogbogbo, OBHG Medical Director of Operations, addresses cultural bias in labor and delivery in a new article published in MedpageToday. In the article, Dr. Ergobogbo discusses that in order to close the gaps in care caused by cultural biases, healthcare providers need to understand the practices that contribute to biased care and know what can be done to curb instances of cultural bias, especially in labor and delivery.
