Institute for Professionalism and Ethical Practice
Enhancing Communication Between Patients, Families, and Clinicians
The Institute for Professionalism and Ethical Practice is a leader in medical communication training focusing on difficult conversations between patients, families, and clinicians. Using live simulated re-enactments, experiential learning, evocative trigger films, and engaged discussions participants learn to navigate such difficult conversations as unexpected diagnoses, medical error, disclosure and apology, end-of-life issues, and prenatal concerns.
