It is my pleasure to invite you to an upcoming course, Difficult
Conversations in Healthcare: Teaching and Practice, which will be
offered on March 8, 2014, May 17, 2014 and June 7, 2014 at Boston Children's Hospital in
Waltham, Massachusetts, USA.
Conversations in Healthcare: Teaching and Practice is a
1-day faculty development course designed for physicians in all
specialties, residency and clerkship directors, medical education
leaders, medical educators, and multidisciplinary healthcare
professionals (social workers, psychologists, and others) interested
in and/or involved in teaching interpersonal and communication
skills, professionalism, relationship-centered care,
patient-practitioner relationships and related topics.
The course offers the opportunity to learn about an innovative,
collaborative relational learning model, known as the Program to
Enhance Relational and Communication Skills (PERCS). The Institute
for Professionalism & Ethical Practice (IPEP) at Boston Children's
Hospital developed this model for teaching and enhancing
communication skills and relational capacities. We anticipate
- Identify educational strategies and facilitation skills in order to teach about communication, professionalism and relationships in health care
- Discuss the philosophy and components of relational learning as practiced in the Institute for Professionalism and Ethical Practice's (IPEP) Program to Enhance Relational and Communication Skills (PERCS)
- Develop strategies to promote and implement relationship-centered teaching and learning within
one's home institution
Participants will experience and learn about the following
educational strategies and pedagogy:
- The PERCS model of realistic enactments with professional actors,
collaborative learning, and reflection and feedback
- The use of narratives
- Videotape and discussion
- Interactive didactic presentation
- Appreciative inquiry
- Small group team-based learning
- Large group discussion
- Facilitated reflections
Difficult Conversations in Healthcare provides teaching and learning
strategies for the communication skills and professionalism
competencies required by many regulatory organizations including the
ACGME, LCME, JCAHO, a and specialty and licensing boards. The course
is also offered as a pre-course for The Harvard Macy Institute's
