Adding a new service to a busy practice is challenging. It requires new skills of team building, systems creation, and time management. Billing, continuing care, and appointment systems will all be impacted, so focusing on the rewards available will energize your team to make a bigger difference in your patient's health than you thought possible.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Plan a team training program that will help every person see their role
  • Develop systems for their practice that reduce barriers to implementation
  • Use improved verbal skills to lead the patients to asking for therapy
