Clinical Relationships: Improving Communication with Patients, Clients and Families
Length: 1 Hour 2 minutes
In the healthcare setting, today’s workplace environment is more complex than ever. Knowing what to say and how to say it can be the difference between your program’s success or failure; and more importantly, it can make a difference in your client or patient’s successful treatment. Because we are in a healthcare setting, ensuring that there is clear understanding between the client/patient and the caregiver is vital. This interactive training program will guide participants in shaping their personal style to become more effective communicators. Participants will practice listening skills, workplace diplomacy, phrasing their messages appropriately and dealing with challenging clients & patients.
