There has been a lot of discussion about hesitancy in black and other minoritized communities, but her point is that it is more of an access issue than a hesitancy issue. We discuss some ways in which we could use existing infrastructure of improve access. We also then discuss how to address hesitancy when discussing with your patients, and not surprisingly, consistent with what we’ve discussed in past episodes, it is about treating the patient as an individual with respect and empathy.

"Don't Tell Me to Calm Down!" - How to Address Patients in Distress with Kaz Nelson, MD

Physician's Guide to Doctoring with Bradley B. Block, MD

Dr. Nelson teaches us how to address #patientsindistress. The patient that says that nobody understands them and nobody listens to them and goes from doctor to doctor feeling ignored and misunderstood. She has a very specific, very methodical strategy for getting them to unclench their fists, sit down and have a conversation about their care. And it doesn’t just apply to the exam room. This works for patients in distress and those who have different #treatmentexpectations and wishes.

Vaccine Hesitancy and Allyship with Aysha Khoury, MD, MPH show art Vaccine Hesitancy and Allyship with Aysha Khoury, MD, MPH

Physician's Guide to Doctoring with Bradley B. Block, MD

We begin the interview by discussing her sudden termination without transparency or due process and use this as a jumping off point to discuss allyship, or in her situation, lack thereof. We then move on to why there is medical mistrust among minoritized communities, including a discussion on why we now use words like minoritized and enslaved. We finish with a discussion on how to address SARS-Co-V-2 vaccine hesitancy in the setting of justifiable medical mistrust.

Motivational Interviewing for Addressing Vaccine Hesitancy with Joseph Weiner, MD, PhD show art Motivational Interviewing for Addressing Vaccine Hesitancy with Joseph Weiner, MD, PhD

Physician's Guide to Doctoring with Bradley B. Block, MD

We go over the basics of motivational interviewing, its origins, the spirit of it, how to go about it and then we discuss how it can be used to have a productive conversation about the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. I haven’t had training in it, but I’ve used it already and it WORKS! You can’t use it to get someone to do something they don’t already want to do, but it helps them clarify their thoughts and hesitations and, using BJ Fogg’s language, either get closer to or over the action line.

When approaching patients with vaccine hesitancy, it is important recognizing that we make many decisions with emotions, not with facts. Fighting misinformation with information probably won’t. The key is trust. Find out the source of their hesitation and never ever dismiss it. Trust starts with relationship building and the conversation ends with addressing concerns. We also discuss how we can build trust in patients from communities that have justifiable mistrust of the medical establishment.

Dr. Facciani is postdoctoral researcher at Vanderbilt University in the Medicine, Health, and Society Department.

This is particularly relevant because of the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine, as we need effectively communicate how it works and any potential risks. We even get into how to effectively conceptualize and communicate risk. and how the traditional antivaxxer isn’t the same as the SARS-CoV-2 antivaxxer.

We also discuss how we can build trust in patients from communities that have justifiable mistrust of the medical establishment. And never bring up misinformation with your patients because it actually plants the seed of it possibly being true.
