Clear Communication for Health Professionals

Workplace Communication Group Description:

Are you feeling that you need to build your self-confidence prior to working in a health care setting? Workplace culture can be quite different in the health care sector in Canada compared to your country of origin, and that’s why this workplace communication group is vital. The purpose of the Clear Communication for Health Care Professionals (CCHP) workplace communication group is to learn how to communicate effectively in a health care setting. It is also your opportunity to ask questions and get clarity – and who better to learn from than from an expert career coach whose goal is to set you up for success. 
Join this group and take a step toward finding or keeping your next job. Improve your soft skills and learn how to develop effective communication skills with patients, colleagues, and inter-disciplinary teams. Communication for Health Professionals (CCHP) is designed to help internationally educated health professionals fine-tune their communication skills with patients and colleagues. You will learn, through role play, scenarios and group discussion, the expectations of Canadian patients and health care providers.
