Enhanced Patient Communication: Building Compassion, Communication and Trust

A Non-Profit Program for All Healthcare Professionals


Live, interactive video-conference technology delivering high-impact, effective education to healthcare professionals without the need to travel

“Faculty were disarming from the beginning…No shaming but the delivery of the information was on point and with empathy towards the students and patient’s in which we care for”

“I was well aware that the people in my group shared similar challenges and traits and it helped with my own development watching them work through the role plays”

“Makes you realize that you are not alone. This class will help the Type A streamline their care with more focused and individual communication strategies”

The Enhanced Patient Communication seminar is designed to help clinicians refine and enhance their patient communication skills. The intensive 10-hour program allows participants to personalize the learning experience to address specific interests and “hot button” issues. Participants have multiple opportunities to practice new skills and receive individualized feedback.

Small Group Sessions – Concrete Plan of Action

Enrollment is limited to eight participants, allowing each clinician the opportunity to identify and work on individual goals. The seminar includes a behavior style profile, interactive discussions, a session on provider well-being and resilience, simulated patient exercises, and development of a personal Plan of Action identifying steps each participant can take to improve patient communication.

Each participant receives a post-seminar report with recommendations from the faculty. The report and the participant’s Plan of Action can be released to a third party if requested by the participant.

Seminar Participants Will:

  • Understand how behavior style and personal history impact communication with patients
  • Improve understanding and mastery of primary principles of effective clinician-patient communication
  • Strengthen communication skills through practice with and feedback from simulated patients
  • Enhance skills in managing challenging communication situations through identification of their own “hot button” issues, such as difficult patient encounters, communicating unanticipated adverse outcomes, saying no, navigating “the list,” or motivating patients to
