Episode Two

In episode two of Legendary Conversations you'll hear a scripted discussion that uses the Ask, Build, Check health literacy model when talking with a patient about starting a new medicine. This episode contains learning moments that highlight the three steps of the model, as well as other important lessons to note.

We recommend also listening to Episode One: Initiating new medicines (part 1) with Professor Keith Petrie for a comprehensive understanding of the psychology behind starting new medicines.
