Upcoming Faculty Development Courses

This curriculum is developed from our evidence-based teaching methodology of observation, practice and feedback. It incorporates small group work, goal setting, and professional actors as simulated patients.

how it works

A different kind of course

Upon completion of the course, you will be ready to teach and host a one day Mastering Tough Conversations communication course that focuses on skills for early palliative care discussion and a late palliative care discussion using simulated patients. Also included in the course is a license agreement, which allows you to receive the latest versions of our teaching maps, simulated patient cases, and facilitation guides that are exclusive to VitalTalk Faculty.

Task structure

This is an intensive two part training series. The first workshop will give you a deep preparation for using core skills in your own practice. Some of the first session’s keys objectives are as follows:

  • Communication skills practice refresher
  • Introduction and practice of the VitalTalk Facilitation model for both small group workshop-oriented teaching and teaching in real time clinical settings
  • Community building
  • Post course engagement to keep skills fresh

Then, 3-6 months later, after you have practiced your new skills and have had time to reflect on them, you will return for a second three-day workshop.
