Pfizer’s New Video Series Can Help You Have More Constructive Conversations

Dawm Rotellini of the NHF introduces Constructive
Conversations Video
Have you ever had a difficult discussion about your or your loved one’s hemophilia? Have you gotten into a heated dialogue about restrictions? Do you wish you had some strategies to have more productive interactions with your physician or hemophilia treatment center?

Effective communication can play a large role in successfully managing hemophilia, navigating difficult discussions during times of transition and building strong relationships between patients, caregivers and healthcare teams. 

A new educational video series from Pfizer Hemophilia called Constructive Conversations aims to provide the community with tools and resources to encourage more caring, constructive, and effective conversations among those impacted by hemophilia.

Originally introduced by Pfizer at the NHF annual meeting, the Constructive Conversations video series allows you to review tips on communicating more effectively in the comfort of your home. The videos portray real-life scenarios that you may face, and show you how to construct a conversation differently to help achieve a better outcome. Each video uses two different approaches: one conversation using a more commanding style also known as a “directive” approach and the other conversation using a more caring, enquiring style also known as a “constructive” approach.

Visit today to watch the videos and sharpen your communication skills!

Good Book I Just Read

The New Single
Tamsen Fadal 

My teammate Zoraida bought this for me as a present. An easy read, snappy and filled with good advice, Emmy award-winning TV
producer  Fadal assesses her life pre-and post-divorce and what she has learned. While mostly geared, I think, for someone new to self-assessment, probably for the 20-30 year old crowd (sad to think they would be divorced then!) as some concepts are really obvious (eat well, get enough sleep) it's still a great reminder on how to be yourself, care for yoruself, develop yourself and not lose your self in a relationship. Women try way too hard to please, sacrifice a lot in the name of relationship, and maybe that needs to change? Two/five stars.
