The Australasian Chapter of Palliative Medicine has developed a communication skills workshop in collaboration with leaders in the field of communication skills. It has been designed specifically to meet the needs of trainees in Palliative Medicine and is recommended for Advanced Training in Palliative Medicine.
Feedback from previous workshops has been overwhelmingly positive:
"Fabulous! Very enjoyable: personally and professionally rewarding" "I can see skills developing that I will use for years"
"This kind of training changes practice and changes outcomes for patients"
This workshop includes a three day experiential learning opportunity based on your needs, and facilitated in small groups: experienced actor patients are used to help you develop and enhance your communication skills.Time commitments: three full days face-to-face Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 23-25 October 2013.
