Advanced Therapeutic Communication Skills - Using Personality Type

May 14, 2019 - May 21, 2019 - St Andrew's Hospice, Henderson Street Airdire ML6 6DJ

Over the last ten years, models of patient listening and communicating have proliferated. They have raised consciousness about the importance and difficulty of communication not only with patients but also within the Healthcare team. However these models appear to assume that all recipients are “the same”- what will work for one person will work for another. As practitioners, we know this is not the case.

Cost: £190
