  • Recognise verbal and non-verbal clues to enhance effective communication
  • Become familiar with communication skills and strategies
  • Practise verbal and non-verbal communication techniques to expand on communication skills.

What’s involved?

  • 1 x 4-hour workshop
  • Small group (max. 8 participants)

  • Experiential learning with a simulated patient (actor) to practise and receive feedback in a safe environment.
