Cross-Cultural Communication within the NHS

Who Would Benefit

Cross-Cultural Communication within the NHS means being culturally aware which provides a real advantage to businesses and individuals who work in multi-cultural organisations. In fact, without this awareness, huge unintentional mistakes can be made which seriously impact communication with patients from other cultures. Also, being culturally aware enables individuals to get the very best from culturally diverse teams and workforces.

Course Description

The aim of this workshop is to explore Cross-Cultural Communication and the ways that culture affects perceptions, behaviours and communications. It will also allow delegates to explore how they can increase the patient’s satisfaction by delivering patient expectations through effective communication skills.
