Continuing Education Workshops
Workshops are available on a wide variety of topics in healthcare communication (click here for IHC’s 2019 training calendar). While there is some variation from program to program, nearly all of the workshops are designed for small groups of 10 to 25 participants. They are based on an extensive research literature, though didactic presentations are kept to a minimum. Active learning is encouraged through case-based discussions, group exercises, video case review, and communication skills practice.
“We’ve found that successful communication results in better patient care, as well as greater satisfaction for both the patient and clinician.” — Gary Friedlaender, M.D. Yale University School of Medicine
IHC’s accredited workshops are available through a large network of healthcare organizations that sponsor IHC faculty members and offer the programs to their clinicians and staff. (Over 200 organizations have sponsored IHC faculty members.) Programs are available for clinicians, non-clinician staff members, and entire healthcare teams.
