A one-day, interactive workshop for medical trainees. Participants will work in a small peer group and address communication challenges drawn from their clinical practice and their educational roles. Particular focus will be on initiating conversations about deteriorating health, people’s priorities and plans for future care such as hospital treatments options, further admissions, clinically assisted nutrition or hydration and CPR.
In this advanced clinical communication workshop participants will:
• Review their current practice in communicating with patients, families and other professionals about deteriorating health and care planning
• Identify personal learning objectives and develop strategies for addressing these within a supported peer learning group
• Critique and apply relevant literature/ theory on effective communication
• Identify ways of increasing communication effectiveness in their own practice
