Communicating through the challenges- Having difficult conversations (When, Where and How)


Communication isn't just talking. Our daily lives are made up of interactions and exchanges. Effective clinical communication, collaboration and teamwork are widely recognised as key factors in providing safe, coordinated and comprehensive care. Professional communication can have the potential to impact outcomes for the people we look after, for students and early clinicians, for nurses and hospital teams. In this session we will explore tips and techniques to communicate in challenging situations. Have you ever faced a barrier to having your views heard? Then this is the session for you. Suitable for all level clinicians, managers, students and team leaders.
