My experience of facilitating communication skills ranges from non-professionals to health and social care professionals working in palliative care or generalist care settings.
I have devised and delivered a number of foundation level communication skills courses as part of the education programme at Katharine House Hospice, Banbury.
In collaboration with educators from other hospices in Oxfordshire, I help to facilitate SAGE & THYME® training across the county.
More recently I contributed toward designing the Enhanced Communication Skills Training currently running at the Oxford Centre for Education and Research: Sobell House
