Answer preview

Communication is a vital component of shared medical decision-making between health care professionals and patients. By effectively communicating with each other, health care professionals and patients will make better decisions for the care of their patients (Arnold & Boggs, 2019). Due to this, patients’ outcomes and satisfaction levels will rise. Communication between Dr. Kerr and the Smiths happened via face-to-face interaction. During this interaction, Dr. Kerr listened attentively to the Smiths as they presented the research they collected on the potential adverse outcomes associated with vaccination. By actively listening to them, Dr. Kerr could correctly identify their concerns about vaccination and respond to them (Arnold & Boggs, 2019). When responding to the Smiths, Dr. Kerr expressed some empathy by acknowledging that vaccinations have recently caused immense controversy.
