Port Macquarie and Hastings Clinical Society
Thursday 6 May | 6pm – 8pm
Rydges Port Macquarie
Join your colleagues at the Port Macquarie and Hastings Clinical Society for dinner and a discussion on effective communication.
We’ll start the evening with some networking and getting to know one another before we unpack the best approaches to talking across disciplines and to patients.
The evening will provide a platform for sharing your service and skills with other local clinicians so that you and others can maximise scope of practice. Using different case scenarios, we’ll explore how you can talk to patients to inform and influence their adoption of health care information and behaviours. We’ll then look at how interdisciplinary communication can improve health outcomes for patients and how to make enhanced communication cost-effective.
Who should attend?
GPs and their registrars, hospital clinical staff, general practice and hospital administration staff, allied health professionals, and anybody seeking to improve their communication with health care providers and clients.
