What to Teach in Communication Skills Teaching: Skills and Structure – Workshop 1

We are delighted to announce a two-module online course focusing on “What to teach” in communication skills teaching.  The course is directed towards teachers of health professionals (for example teachers of students and clinicians in medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, etc.)  who wish to explore the foundational skills and structure of health care interactions.

It is suitable for teachers of a variety of experience and is particularly suitable for those early on in the teaching careers.

This is a shorter online version of our two-day annual ‘What to teach’ course that will focus on the basic core clinical communication skills rather than specific communication challenges. The primary focus of this course will be on the structure and skills of healthcare communication. The course will look at the various models in use to conceptualise health care communication and analyse communication skills in observed encounters with patients. This will help participants:

  • clarify what they are trying to teach
  • define the individual specific skills of effective clinical communication
  • break down the complex task of the interview into its individual components

We will explore communication skills by observing prepared videos and work in small groups/break out rooms.

The online course will be facilitated by experienced teachers from tEACH, the teaching committee of EACH: International Association of Communication in Healthcare. The proceedings will be held in English and as much as possible will accommodate participants for whom English is not their first language.

Please note, this course is not about online facilitation skills but rather the content of what should be included in any communication teaching sessions.
