Just like our community of GPs in Australia and their ongoing education and professional development, the passionate medical recruiters also continuously strive to exceed at their jobs.
It can easily be underestimated, but passionate recruiters are very serious about their own development – in fact, our success relates to BOTH a happy client and a happy candidate.
6 Medical Questions For Doctors to Ask Themselves
How serious are the conditions and are there any causes for it?
Preempting here is key and discussing the right issues at the right time can help you to prepare for the right kind of flow throughout your time talking together. We previously mentioned an idea of a Structure for a consultation and this could be part of that. By being the first to suggest and bring up certain key bits of information you could also present it the way you would like.
Do they need treatment and what kind?
Being prepared with the right kind of information, ready-to-go, is key to bringing it up in your conversations when the time calls for it. This helps you to build trust, earn respect and provide a solution. Preempting this could also help with progressing through the consultation.
Do they need to see any other medical professionals? And which of those are available at the same medical centre?
This is a great way of creating an internal referral network and it encourages cooperation for the overall success of everyone in the business. And as our consultants in the pharmacy and medical imaging divisions hear on a regular basis, the right relationships across the businesses can be attractive for the overall survival of the medical centres.
Is there room for self-improvement?
Continuously asking yourself this question can help with your own development. But it can also serve as a great segue to bring the consultation to an end. The right information here can instil confidence and a positive outlook, all in a timely manner. By preempting it, you have the benefit of presenting your facts in the most compelling way.
How effective is the solution going to be and is there any strong evidence for it?
By discussing all the necessary details involved, how effective the solution will be and the assurance, confidence and respect you build with each other you can start to close your consultation in the best possible way. Providing any descriptive, relevant and real life examples to support your solution also aims to be the final touch to your trust building in the consultation.
What happens if nothing is done?
This can be a tough one to predict. But being aware of it can help with complacency, both in your own work and for the lives of your patients. Recruiters ask themselves this question when figuring out creative ways for self-development, for how long can they keep expecting the same results if they don’t make changes? Doctors can use this question as a means of giving one last, thoughtful argument to why the solution is the best outcome for the patient in your consultation.
