Event description

Description

Join Professor Peter Martin for an enlightening forum on the art of communication between patients and doctors.

Peter has a Joint Appointment between Deakin University and Barwon Health as the Professor of Clinical Communication and End of Life Care. He is the inaugural Director of Deakin's Centre for Organisational Change in Person-Centred Healthcare. His interest in communication skills was driven by patient needs and medical students' reports that they felt unprepared for difficult conversations. The evidence was clear that good communication can improve outcomes for patients and doctors, and Peter has come to believe that communication skills are just as important in clinical training as clinical knowledge and procedural skill.

Free refreshments will be provided. St Mary's Library and Research Centre is access friendly.
