Learning in Everyday Practice

Did you know that many experienced practitioners report learning their communication and relationship skills through everyday practice, including reflecting on own skills and modelling the skills of others?

You don't have to go on a training course or workshop to learn more about communication and relationships. There are a number of learning opportunities that you can use in everyday practice to support your skills and development. In order to ensure that this type of learning is effective it is important to ensure:

•    That you have planned for or negotiated sufficient time to prepare for encounters,
•    That you receive constructive feedback, and
•    That the use of a real interaction as a development opportunity does not adversely impact on patient care.
