Pulmonary Rehab Support Group Meeting

Communicating Effectively

July 5th, 2022 1:30 PM MST

Breathe Strong is proud to partner with author and educator Marilyn Klingler RN, B.S., M.Ed. on her informative and helpful online support group meetings. This month she welcomes Jane Martin, respiratory therapist, consultant, speaker, educator and author of  Live Your Life With COPD – 52 weeks of Health Happiness and Hope. 


She will be talking about “Communicating Effectively with your Doctor, Family, Friends, and even with Strangers.”

·       Is it possible to tell your doctor everything you should, talk together about it, then leave the office understanding what you’re supposed to do between then and your next appointment?

·       Have you ever had a conversation with someone close to you and found yourself thinking, “That’s not what I meant!” Do you find it hard to ask for help when you can no longer do something on your own? Do others rush over to help you before you can accomplish a task on your own? Have you ever avoided asking for help, pushing through on a task to the point of exhaustion?

·       Have you ever been out and about when a person—a stranger to you—stared at you and your supplemental oxygen?

We will talk about barriers to effective communication and how you can overcome them.
