ā€œā­ā­ā­ā­ā­ Laurie was engaging as a speaker. I learned to approach patient care differently seeing patients as different and not "difficult". I took away key points and different strategies to use in my interactions with patientsā€”just a matter of finding the time to make adjustments and implement these changes.ā€
