Course Description

FMLM Accredited Course Marque
The Francis Report highlighted the importance of team communication skills in reducing risk and error.

When the pressure is on it is not always easy to express yourself clearly or come across confidently. Being an effective communicator saves your time and energy and leads to greater personal achievement. It improves your perception of those around you and what is happening while reducing the risk of errors during key events like handovers. Others will begin to see you as someone with presence and influence.

The Oxford Medical Advanced Team Communication Skills Course for Doctors is a 1-day highly interactive course which will challenge and stimulate you to think again, about how to communicate.  On this one day course we focus upon your interactions with colleagues and superiors, whether within small teams or in a larger organisational context. You will explore your personal communication style, how this differs to others, plus models of rapport, influence and trust before practising challenging scenarios in small groups. You will also look at assertiveness strategies to help you contribute more and communicate well in a medical environment. The ultimate impact upon patients is always kept in mind.
