This webinar will open the conversation about how the view of the training participants influences the acceptance and utilization of communication tools, and what organizations should consider when striving to improve communication processes among staff as well as between patients/families and the health care team.

Your organization may provide training programs in assertiveness, conflict resolution, difficult discussions and other communication-based tools. Participants are enthused. They try the tools and skills. Yet six months later, for many programs, it may feel as though the training never happened. Was the training bad? No. Did the participants try? Probably. So why doesn’t the training stick? The problem with most communication related training programs is that the emphasis is on the skills and tools and ignores the underlying HUMAN system behaviors that perpetuate the misunderstandings and communication breakdowns for which the tools are designed.

This webinar will open the conversation about how the view of the training participants influences the acceptance and utilization of communication tools, and what organizations should consider when striving to improve communication processes among staff as well as between patients/families and the healthcare team.

Objectives:

  • • Discuss the communication model with an emphasis on the function of the closed loop
  • • Describe the impact of the neuronal system on interpretation of messaging
  • • Evaluate communication situations for behavioral hardwiring opportunities
