They will be able to say what’s so while conveying compassion and concern, putting emphasis on the patient, letting them know that “we care about YOU.” They will have a high EQ and be comfortable with gravity of this conversation, able to be discerning while not judgmental. They will be people who flow easily with what others call stress, with being on call at a moment’s notice to meet people during an important transition.
