Communication Skills (Lecture-Style Seminar) (Self-Study)



You likely know that the success of your patients' relationships depends largely on their communication skills. You also likely know that communication skills can be learned and mastered, but require adequate implementation for them to be successful. The purpose of this seminar is to help you learn and master all that, so you can continue to make the difference you make for your patients and clients, and for the field.
