Communicating successes, outcomes & results ensures a well informed community, leading to both political will and future funding/support. This course provides two sets of tools: 1.To address the skills needed to improve communication, motivate patients and increase job-satisfaction, and 2.To perfect ways to communicate outcomes/results and success stories.
