Team communication: Recognising and mitigating risks

Taking place on Wednesday, 20 March between 9.30am and 12.30pm, this course is suitable for any clinician working within a team in primary and secondary care settings.

This interactive Zoom course is suitable for any clinician working within a team in primary and secondary care settings. The session will include real case examples and aims to highlight the risks associated with team communication and the potential impacts on patient safety, organisational culture and morale.

Common areas of team interaction that will be included are:

• Team meetings
• Patient handovers/debriefs
• Delegation and shared care processes

Via exploration of relevant regulatory guidance, improving soft skills in communication and processes and good practices in team communication, delegates will feel better equipped to identify risks and mitigate adverse outcomes within their team working environment to improve communication and ultimately deliver quality patient care.


This course is led by MDDUS Risk Adviser, Kay Louise Grant.

Application has been made to the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK for 3 CPD credits.
