Clinical competence depends on knowledge, clinical reasoning and physical examination and treatment skills but that is not enough. We also need to be able to conduct a good patient-centred interview and to motivate our patients to change. There is a large body of evidence that shows that there are significant problems in our interviews with patients and many of these problems relate to an inadequacy in communication. In fact research is suggesting that up to 70% of medico-legal cases against health care practitioners concern communication issues.
To help in this important area, the Train Pain Academy is offering a 2 day experiential workshop focusing on clinician communication skills training.The workshop will be completely interactive, participant centred and experiential.
