Dictation Etiquette

Dictation Etiquette We often blame physicians for their illegible writing, but sometimes, their dictation skills aren’t much better. I have the feeling that physicians and medical transcriptionists alike are going to love these videos, just released by SpeechMagic to help physicians with a few tips and tricks for optimal digital dictation / speech recognition output:

Beware of background noise

Distance to the mike

Keep a constant rhythm

On the same note, I came across a blog called “Dictation Therapy for Doctors”. The author offers Language Skills Worksheets and Consciousness Raising Exercises, my favorite being Exercise #2, “designed for physicians who vent their anger against the personnel in the Medical Record Department during the course of their dictation!” The site also displays a number of cartoons, “perfect for printing and and posting in a variety of high-impact places in hospitals and clinical settings”. Enjoy!
