What does it involve?

A one-day interactive and practical session tailored to the needs of your specialty.

The morning session comprises a series of lectures, reflections and activities on the importance and benefits of good communication in developing a trusting relationship with patients, eliciting expectations and arriving at decisions with patients. You will also examine the importance of engaging patients after an actual or perceived adverse outcome and learn a model for undertaking this conversation.

In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to practice the skills learnt by working with actor-simulated patients on scenarios of both pre and post-treatment
