Critical conversations -  preparing for success

As allied health practitioners, we are sometimes faced with situations where a difficult conversation is required to achieve the best outcome for a patient, and these conversations can challenge the beliefs of those taking part. In this session we explore the many different reasons these conversations can be challenging, and unpack strategies that may be helpful in addressing some of these issues as well as caring for ourselves during these conversations.

Functional ability recommendations
