The relationship developed between doctors and their patients is one of the most meaningful components of being a doctor. Moreover, understanding not only what patients tell you, but how they tell it is a crucial step to making the right diagnosis and establishing a successful therapeutic alliance.

To develop this relationship you will need to master the art of communication, which will be essential, especially during difficult situations.

In this workshop, you will learn the most efficient techniques to deliver bad news, how to empathize with your patients and how to support them positively. You will also get familiar with how to read patients’ body language and interpret what is being expressed.

Don’t miss this opportunity to become a better doctor!
