This two day course is relevant for registered health professionals working with patients at the end of their life. This training is taking place on 30th and 31st January 2023 at St Clare Hospice, Hastingwood.

National policy and research continues to emphasise the importance of effective communication skills for health and social care professionals. The positive impact on the experience of care and the wider organisation is well documented.

This well evaluated, two day experiential course explores challenging communication issues from the participant’s practice. The approach to learning is interactive and involves the use of actors. Facilitators guide and support the participant through the process to ensure everyone feels safe.

The course addresses:

  • Background and evidence base
  • Specific communication skills
  • Strategies in certain contexts e.g. breaking bad news, dealing with anger, handling distress
  • Developing confidence in managing challenging scenarios

10 CPD credit points have been approved for this course by the Royal Colleges of Physicians.
