Communication Symposium:
A Workshop to Improve Communication in Your ICU

(pre-registration required)
A Workshop to Improve Communications in Your ICU

Quality care of critically ill patients is not just dependent on clinical expertise but also, and perhaps even more importantly, communication skills and empathy. Fortunately both can be taught and learned. Join us for this highly interactive and multidisciplinary workshop to discover how to improve patient-centered care and communication in your ICU. This workshop is open to all intensive care unit providers: nurses, advanced practitioners, pharmacists, social workers, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, and physicians. By drawing on each other’s experiences and engaging in facilitated dialogue, you will walk away with tangible strategies to overcome communication challenges to improve care, at all levels, of patients in the ICU. You will also learn strategies to effectively engage patients and families in the ICU and mindfulness techniques for enhancing empathic communication. Register now as this highly interactive and engaging workshop is almost sold out!
