Challenging Conversations Simulation Training

Poor communication can have tragic consequences to a patient’s safety and survival. Challenging conversations happen with colleagues, patients and relatives and often can be anxiety provoking for staff.  This simulated training provides an environment to practice these skills and reflect on the situations which may happen in our working lives.
