The importance of good communication skills can never be over-emphasized. In all professions including healthcare, we are asked to send clear messages, be able to receive and interpret messages correctly, and respond appropriately. Although most of us will never become professional public speakers, we are always expected to be able to understand the basic elements of good communication. To that end the course will cover verbal and non-verbal communication skills, listening, writing, messages, notes, memos, and public speaking.
