  4. How and why effective communication is important to the patient and the doctor?

  6. How to communicate and still manage time effectively.
  7. We discussed Prof Drossman’s educational videos for health practitioners on effective communication.
  8. We also discussed in great details Prof Drossman’s 10-point guide to ‘Learning & Applying Effective Communication Skills to Optimise the Provider Patient Relationship’, and how verbal and no verbal behaviour affects communication.
