Enhanced Communication Skills (One day)

Enhanced Communication Skills (One day)

The study day aims to facilitate and enhance the personal and professional development of health and care professionals across all care settings engaged in palliative care through developing communication skills. Enabling those working in those settings to feel more confident in having difficult conversations about living well until the point of death, with both the ill person and their carers.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understanding communication barriers and how to overcome them

  • Enhancing skills of active listening

  • Enabling effective use of questions to open and maintain conversation

  • Increasing awareness of non-verbal communication
