This CPD Module will help you identify ways to improve your communication skills for the benefit of your patients, your team, and your organisation.

This session has all of the elements you need to develop good, effective communication skills that will help in day-to-day dealings with patients, the team and other key individuals in the organisation.

Effective communication skills are important in all walks of life, but especially important in a clinical practice setting, where we need to be mindful of how we communicate with other healthcare professionals, colleagues and patients because this can impact on patient care and satisfaction. This learning will help you think about how your language, it’s delivery, the tone of communication might affect someone else’s understanding of what you are trying to say and the resultant consequences of that.
