Better Communication for Better Outcomes
A day seminar for health professionals with Alison Sim
Join us as we spend a day exploring the value of communication in a clinical setting and how you can use some structured approaches to implement better ways of communicating with your clients. We will explore:
- How the research tells us that communication probably has a bigger role to play in your outcomes than anything you can do with your “hands on” skills
- Motivational Interviewing
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- How we define “success” in the clinic
- Functional outcome measure to assess our client’s progress
- Workshop style activities to practice implementing some different communication approaches
- Open to all practitioners who are working with clients with pain. We take a heavily evidence based approach to look at ways that we can improve our outcomes, without having to change our way of practicing too much.
