Communication

Concluding Activity

The 10 Concluding Activities are designed to support reflective practice in each of the ten learning units. You must complete all 10 Concluding Activities to evidence you have completed the Flying Start NHS programme. As you complete the units, you are creating your evidence to support your NHS KSF development review and pay progression at the Foundation Gateway.

Concluding Activity

The aim of this unit is to enable you to communicate effectively and competently with patients, clients, carers, colleagues and other agencies using a range of skills and approaches in increasingly complex situations.

Following a period of reflective practice, consider your overall activity and learning within this unit and make a portfolio entry that demonstrates how you will be able to:

  • apply a range of skills and approaches to support effective communication within any healthcare setting
  • identify and evaluate the methods used by the multi-professional team to provide effective communication
  • critically appraise your learning needs in relation to communication skills
