Dear Doctors, Nurses and fellow healthcare professionals,
PALLIATIVE CARE WORKSHOP ON COMMUNICATION SKILLS (14 – 15 April 2018)
We would like to invite interested participants to our 2-day Palliative Care Workshop on Communication Skills which will be conducted from 14 – 15 April 2018.
Effective communication skills are an absolute necessity towards providing well planned palliative care which is delivered through the collaborative efforts of many people including the patient, their care givers (family and friends) and healthcare providers.
This workshop deals with the mechanics of communication that ranges from issues, techniques and practical sessions when dealing with patients with life-limiting illness and their families.
This workshop will be facilitated by Dr Rebecca Coles-Gale, Clinical & Health Psychologist from the United Kingdom together with Dr Sylvia McCarthy from Hospis Malaysia. This workshop will focus on highly interactive role plays, problem-based learning and case studies in small group settings.
It is conducted in English, all participants will be expected to communicate and interact during the workshop. Doctors and nurses will benefit most as the most difficult areas are encountered during clinical consultations.
Registration for workshop can be made online at our website: www.hospismalaysia.org For further enquiries, kindly contact Communication Department via telephone: 03 9133 3936.
