  • Communication

    Communication skills are key to everything you will do as a registered health practitioner. You will find this unit builds on your pre-registration/ undergraduate education and experience and the main focus now is to build your confidence in applying your communication skills independently in practice. This unit provides a range of activities that will help you to develop your skills and confidence when communicating in your new role.

    Policy can sometimes feel very removed from the delivery of healthcare. This unit aims to help you understand the important relationship between policy and delivery at a local level. Understanding national targets will strengthen your ability to ensure these are met locally.
