Promoting Compassion in Healthcare – Communication Skills Workshop (Virtual Learning) – 23rd January 2024

Our 3-hour online interactive workshop, aimed at Clinicians, is a practical approach to active listening and how to display this in communication with patients and colleagues. We use an evidence-based approach to building and successfully maintaining rapport with patients, looking at the importance of empathy & compassion.

You will hear valuable insights from an expert patient discussing the difficulties faced whilst navigating the NHS and how we can learn from this.

You will also be introduced to an easy to remember framework to manage challenging consultations and end with a toolkit to implement in your every-day practice.  


You must have a working camera and microphone to access this session on Zoom.
