Individual session - Specialist Clinical Communication and Linguistic Support

New sessions are available to book in January, February and March 2024. Please only book one session at a time as spaces are limited.

This session is currently being delivered via Microsoft Teams

An individual two-hour session working with a specialist educator, a linguist and a specialist role player as required to develop your communication skills for clinical practice.

Healthcare professionals typically apply for an individual session to:

  • address needs identified through feedback from colleagues and educators
  • develop skills to navigate difficult conversations
  • explore linguistic or cultural issues which may be impacting on communication
  • respond to the outcome of an ARCP, appraisal, or revalidation
  • improve exam performance

The session includes:

  • a discussion with an educationalist about your expectations and how to make the most of this opportunity
  • a review of your communication skills via role play with specialist simulators, of conversations or situations you find challenging
  • verbal reflection and feedback to help identify your personal strengths and use these to rehearse fresh approaches and skills
  • a personal development plan focussed on next steps

You may also use the session to:

  • develop your writing skills (you may need to bring/show anonymised materials to work on)
  • rehearse presentations and oral examination performance
  • work with a linguist on specific language challenges
