Clear Prompts Can Improve Vaccination Rates, Patient Satisfaction
Using clear and matter-of-fact language around vaccinations is effective for ensuring patients get preventive care while still preserving patient satisfaction, according to a group of researchers at Boston Medical Center.
The debate around vaccines and vaccine-hesitancy has garnered much attention over the past year, as the world has found itself grappling with a deadly virus that could be eradicated through herd immunity with a vaccine. Now that the global community has access to some prominent approved vaccines, conversations have turned toward ensuring patients follow through on getting that vaccine.
While much of the medical community is looking at community health partnerships, public health messaging, and empathic communication to drive the COVID-19 vaccine efforts, Perkins added it would be important to use unambiguous language when educating patients.
