Connecting With Patients: The Final Frontier

Connecting With Patients: The Final Frontier is an original, interactive keynote that teaches medical professionals how to increase their level of engagement with their patients in a way that helps them have more impact, improves their level of Patient Centred Care and helps them find more fulfillment in their work.

Who is Rob to teach this?

Inspired by his experience as a cancer survivor and drawing on his work in comedy, Rob has created content for medical professionals, taught at U of T Medical School, created a workshop for the Ontario Hospital Association, and used comedy to help cancer patients and their families find courage and resources they didn’t know they had. All of this experience enriches and informs Connecting With Patients: The Final Frontier.

Rob starts with his patient story, his experiences navigating the healthcare system and the impact that great care has on the patient experience. He then demonstrates what it will do for medical professionals, on an emotional, professional and business level.

  • Confirmation that you now have the skill set to do this effectively.
  • Proof that you have a much more impact than you think.
