Advanced communication skills for senior medical decision makers

This course aims at providing experience to senior decision makers of challenging communication scenarios. The focus is on learning with a detailed debrief following each scenario in which the experience is discussed, non-judgemental feedback is provided and a development plan is agreed so that learning can be applied to clinical practice. It consists of a half day consisting of four scenarios and is designed to imitate, as closely as possible, some of the common challenges faced by senior medical doctors including breaking bad news, dealing with complaints, duty of candour after medical error, conflict management and communicating uncertainty and risk.
