A Conversation Map® is a series of images and metaphors—a tool for health care professionals to use to engage groups of patients in conversations around a health care topic, such as diabetes.
This innovative teaching method is providing participants with a process by which they can plan changes in their decision making and behaviors. In some cases, the action plan is robust, while in other cases it provides a starting point for change.
