[2 min watch] Top tips for communicating with pathologists
If you see patients with skin cancer concerns, you might spend a lot of time communicating with pathologists to reach a diagnosis for your patients. In this short video, Prof David Wilkinson provides his top tips for effectively communicating with pathologists to achieve faster and more accurate results.
“Sometimes, it seems like we’re almost talking in a different language.”
Prof Wilkinson’s first tip is to try to stick to the same pathologist where possible, so that you can build a trusted connection and more effective communication with one person.
He also gives advice for what to include on the pathology form so the pathologist understands what you are providing and what you are asking for.
Watch all this and much more in the full video below.

Good day, there! I think it’s quite possible to let my sister’s neighbor know about this article to inspire her to seek medical attention at an instant. I was particularly drawn into your argument that it’s better to opt for the service from the same pathology specialist to ease all of our subsequent evaluations. You see, she keeps complaining about her aching skin which has been persistent for almost a month now, which sounds quite abnormal for me. https://www.summitpathology.com/for-patients/our-services/
