Inaugural St. Mary’s Hospital and McGill University Lecture
on Enhancing Patient-Centered Care

with special guest speaker
Dr. Timothy Gilligan
Associate Professor, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine
The Power of Relationship-Centered Communication in Healthcare
The lecture will discuss relationship-centered communication and relationship-centered healthcare using
Cleveland Clinic as an example. Our underlying philosophy has been that relationships are a central
element in healthcare and that physicians and other employees of the healthcare system benefit
from help with building relational communication skills so that they can work more effectively
with patients, colleagues and co-workers. It is about both skills training and culture change.
The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion and question time.
The lecture will be held at the McGill Faculty Club, 3450 Rue McTavish, Montreal, H3A 0E5.
