Advanced Communication Tools for Practice - Listening well and feeling heard

Pre-course requirements

Course aim
The focus of advanced communications skills in Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) is to enable clients to feel heard and understood so that they can be supported to make the changes they want and need to make as they become parents for the first time.  These skills are based on the theory and practice of motivational interviewing which some of the delegates may already be familiar with.

Course objectives

  • Refresh and revise current communication skills you are using in your practice.
  • Explore and practice different approaches, or consolidate existing skills, via skills practice.
  • Increase confidence.
  • Describe and explore how communication skills are used in FNP.
  • Plan ongoing learning
