It can improve existing content
If you already have some text written, such as an email you are about to send to a clinic, you can have Chat GPT proofread and change the style for you.
“Correct grammar in this text”
Provide instant feedback on grammar and syntax errors, helping you to clean up your writing and make it more professional.
“Make this sound more professional/friendly/stern/convincing”
Suggest alternative words and phrasing to improve the flow of your writing and make it more engaging for your audience. For your own amusement you can even try “Make this sound like it was written by Charles Dickens”!
“What else could I mention?”
Generate ideas and inspiration for your writing, helping you to overcome writer’s block and produce more content in less time.
“Would you disagree with anything I have said in this?”
Assist with proofreading and editing, helping you to catch mistakes and inconsistencies that may have slipped past your initial review.
It can aid diagnosis & treatment
“What is the latest research on X?”
A great way to use ChatGPT is to quickly find accurate and up-to-date medical information. With the vast amount of medical literature available online, it can be challenging for therapists to keep track of the latest research and findings. However, with ChatGPT’s ability to quickly analyze and process large amounts of data, therapists can access the latest medical knowledge with ease. This can help them make more informed diagnoses and treatment decisions, leading to better patient outcomes.
A study published in the journal Nature Medicine in 2020 found that ChatGPT was even able to diagnose certain medical conditions with a high degree of accuracy, including skin cancer and neurological disorders, however the study also noted that ChatGPT’s ability to diagnose medical conditions was limited by the quality and amount of data available.
You should be aware however, that ChatGPT can “hallucinate” facts. A small amount of the time it can produce a completely false but seemingly convincing piece of information. You should use it as a starting point and check the information elsewhere.
“What are treatment options for a patient with condition X? I have already tried treatments Y, W and Z”
Another way ChatGPT can aid therapists is by providing them with personalized treatment plans for their patients. By analyzing a patient’s medical history and symptoms, ChatGPT can suggest tailored treatment options that are specific to that individual’s needs. This can help therapists provide more effective treatments, leading to better patient outcomes and higher levels of patient satisfaction.
“Summarise this paper in a way in which it is easily understandable”
Additionally, ChatGPT can generate patient-friendly versions of clinical papers, such as informed consent forms, discharge instructions, and patient education materials. By tailoring these materials to patients’ needs and preferences, therapists can improve patient engagement and compliance, leading to better health outcomes and fewer re-admissions.
It can also simplify complex medical terms and explaining medical concepts in layman’s terms. This can help patients better understand their health conditions, treatment options, and how to navigate the healthcare system. By providing patients with clear and concise information, healthcare providers can improve patient outcomes and satisfaction.
