All the Oliver Center guiding virtues are incorporated into our year-round interpersonal skills and communication workshop series. In partnership with the UTMB Graduate Medical Education office and the
Nurse Residency Program,
the Oliver Center facilitates small-group workshops for all resident physicians and nursing residents. On demand workshops are also available at the faculty and staff level through the Oliver Center. Workshops address a variety of communication skills and patient-centered best care practices including:
- Empathetic communication skills with patients and colleagues
- Shared decision-making and communication among the team
- Time-neutral techniques to improve communication
- Techniques to increase successful resolution of conflicts
Self-reflection, peer discussions/feedback, and interactive small-group activities are incorporated into all workshops.
Our newest work involves training and coaching front-line faculty and staff in using the AIDET® communication framework with every patient and care partner. Contact us if you'd like education or coaching in your department, division, or small group.
This work is made possible by generous support from The Moody Foundation.
