Course details


Kedleston Road, Derby Campus

Course description

For all professionals working within supportive palliative care, whether within health, social, voluntary or pastoral care, who are advancing their communication skills, such as allied health professionals, vocational practitioners, specialist nurse, advanced clinical practitioners and medical practitioners. This short course will be facilitated by a range of experienced clinicians, such as senior nurses, medical consultants, lecturers, all having undertaken extended training in advanced communication skills.

At the end of the workshop, all students will have undertaken a filmed role play within their group, of their chosen difficult communication scenario, where feedback will be given. Those students who have chosen an attendance only option, which is non accredited and non-assessed, will receive a certificate, which will support the revalidation process and good practice.
