TRAINING TOPICS

CONFLICT MANAGEMENT IN HEALTHCARE

Conflict causes decided tension at work and often produces poor professional outcomes. If conflict is not directed and controlled, it can have damaging effects in the healthcare setting. It is very important to identify the source of conflict before attempting to resolve it because the source of conflict influences the style of resolution employed. Healthcare professionals should learn effective conflict management skills to support a positive work environment. In this training we will cover:

  • Understanding the sources & stages of conflict

  • Non-violent communication.

  • Understanding how conflict impacts health and wellbeing

  • Establishing a protocol to handle conflict 

  • Conflict resolution strategies

CULTURAL AWARENESS

Managing cultural differences is essential to providing patient-centered care because culture influences patients’ responses to illness and treatment. Cultural awareness is the ability to perceive our own cultural beliefs, values, and customs, and to understand how they shape our decisions and behavior.  Cultural competence in healthcare is the ability to provide culturally sensitive care to patients from diverse backgrounds. In this training we will cover:

  • 5 Essential elements to developing cultural competence

  • Cultural dimensions

  • Understanding cultural differences in human behavior 

  • Working with medical interpreters

  • Best practices for effective communication in a cross-cultural environment

CHANGE MANAGEMENT IN HEALTHCARE

We are constantly experiencing change in healthcare due to the technological advancement, aging population, changing disease patterns and new discoveries for the treatment of diseases. Change can be challenging and frustrating at times. But when we apply a structured approach to any change in the healthcare settings we can minimize risk, increase adoption and ensure a smooth and enjoyable transition. In this training we will cover:   

  • What is change management and its importance & tools

  • How the change management methodology facilitates transitions in the healthcare setting

  • How to build resilience and prepare your healthcare team to embrace change

  • ADKAR Model-the building blocks for change

  • How to create your own plan

ENHANCING THE PATIENT EXPERIENCE

Patient experience is the sum of all patient interactions and perceptions as they access care. Health professionals must deliver high-quality, compassionate, culturally sensitive, timely and convenient care to ensure a positive patient experience. As empowered consumers, patients are looking for options that reflect their personal values therefore it is imperative to understand and address patients’ needs, desires and expectations as they seek care. In this training we will cover:

  • Understanding the patients’ journey as they seek care 

  • Creating a positive care environment 

  • Integrating shared decision making and motivational interviewing to enhance provider-patient communication

  • Uncovering the blind spot of patient satisfaction

  • Tips to improve patient experience

HAPPINESS & WELLBEING AT THE WORKPLACE

in partnership with Abayomi 

Healthcare professionals need mental and physical health, nurtured by a supportive work environment that gives them the cognitive and emotional capacity to provide high-quality patient care. The Abayomi Methodology offers a guideline to promote happiness and support wellbeing and at the workplace (the happiest workers are six times more energized and twice as productive-Price-Jones, 2010). Ensuring the well-being and happiness of the healthcare workforce is vital to prevent burnout, enhance patient’s safety and satisfaction, and raise quality at lower costs. In this training we will cover:

  • Overview of the Abayomi Methodology for promoting happiness at work

  • 6 Dimensions of wellbeing at the workplace

  • Creating a resilient work environment 

  • Self-care at work

  • Holistic approach to professional development 

PURPOSEFUL COMMUNICATION IN HEALTHCARE

Communication in healthcare settings is one of the most critical tools to provide high-quality patient care. Effective communication can help prevent injuries and death, increase trust between providers and patients, and strengthen relationships with other members of the care team. Healthcare professionals must communicate in a manner that shows empathy, compassion and understanding to respond appropriately to patient’s needs, concerns and expectations. In this training we will cover:

  • Communication styles

  • Active & reflective listening

  • Non-verbal communication

  • Giving & receiving feedback

  • Engaging your patients

  • Best practices for patient-centered communication
