Having closely followed the evolving coronavirus situation; and taking into consideration official advice and local needs, we have decided to postpone all our face to face events until further notice. We have taken this unprecedented decision because the health and safety of our members and colleagues is paramount.
We will continue monitoring the situation over the coming weeks and decide if there is a need to postpone any future events. We hope to be able to re-schedule the postponed events later in the year if possible. In the interim, you can still access online Risk Prevention programmes through our PRISM platform and we will be scheduling regular webinars.

- Incorporate the skills of listening, reflection and checking on patient understanding.
- Improve the skills required for consent and shared decision making.
- Appreciate patient motivations to complain or claim.
- Communicate regret and empathy with the patient’s situation and understand that this is not necessarily an admission of liability.
- Apply models for communicating with patients about adverse outcomes.

What does it involve?
A one-day interactive and practical session tailored to the needs of your specialty.
The morning session includes a series of lectures and activities on the importance of good communication in developing a trusting relationship with your patients. Here we’ll cover discussing expectations and arriving at decisions with patients, and the importance of engaging with them after an adverse outcome, looking at a model for carrying out these conversations.
In the afternoon you’ll have the opportunity to practise these skills. You’ll work with professional actors in the role of patient, roleplaying scenarios from before and after treatment.
