Shared Decision Making for the Perioperative Clinician Workshop

A one day workshop to help you acquire the skills to engage high risk surgical patients in Shared Decision Making

This ​one-day workshop will help you acquire the skills to engage your high-risk surgical patients in Shared Decision Making.

Participants will be provided with practical models of how Shared Decision Making can be incorporated into the care of high-risk surgical patients both before and after surgery. They will also learn communication skills that will help them initiate these difficult conversations. This will be followed by an afternoon of experiential learning facilitated by professional actors and communication-skills experts.

This workshop is suited to all clinicians, nurses, allied health staff and trainees who work with patients in the perioperative period and want to increase their communication skills to discuss issues relating to Shared Decision Making and Advance Care Planning.
