Communication Skills Workshop

The aim of this course is to support trainees in effective communications with colleagues, patients and their families and help identify appropriate tools/strategies to assist in the clinical work environment. The workshop covers:

• how individual and environmental factors can be optimised to facilitate communication

• identifying barriers to effective communication

• effectively delivering 'bad' or unexpected news

• how to identify individual areas for improvement and develop a personalised action plan
