Project Description

This web workshop session been developed to support front line staff and other health care professionals in General Practice to develop their skills and confidence to provide excellence in customer service and to better manage disputes and to help manage challenging conflict situations experienced in practice.

We will consider how and why conflict may arise between staff members and the patients or their carers around access to services, treatments and other aspects of practices life and will consider and reflect on ways to manage this.

All delegates will be provided with course handouts and will be issued with a certificate after the webinar.

At the PMA we pride ourselves on the understanding that one size doesn’t fit all and – therefore, we have various formats of our workshops and can adapt any programme / agenda to suit your local needs and necessaries – so, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
