Ros Wright Webinar ~ Empathy: Examining this key relationship building skill and making it stick

An ability to demonstrate effective relationship building skills, especially empathy is essential to successful communication in the healthcare environment. In fact it is the cornerstone of person-centred care. However, learners often struggle to demonstrate it effectively. Ros will first consider the nature of empathy and its positive impacts on patient care before providing ways to help develop this skill in English. A clinical communications model for demonstrating empathy will be presented, with focus given to both verbal and non-verbal expression. Finally, she will invite discussion on adaptation of this model for learners from other professions.
