Conflict resolution and mediation course agenda 2019
6 CPD credits*
Breakdowns in communication and trust and ever increasing expectations of treatment and care can result in conflict. The impact on all those involved in terms of time and emotion can be enormous.
This course is designed to help healthcare professionals understand how and why conflicts can arise between themselves and patients and their families, as well as what they can do to try and resolve them.
This course complements the Effective complaints handling in primary care course and Effective complaints handling in secondary care course. They are on consecutive days to make it easier for you to attend both courses if you would like to.
*This course has been approved by the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK for 6 category 1 (external) CPD credits.
