Simulated Difficult Pre-Natal Conversations
The Institute for Professionalism and Ethical Practice is a leader in medical communication training focusing on difficult conversations between clinicians and patients/families such as unexpected diagnoses, medical error disclosure and apology, end-of-life issues, and prenatal diagnosis issues. Live workshops utilize simulated conversations with our cadre of expert faculty and improvisational actors as part of the learning process. We create a safe learning environment where clinicians can practice or observe a difficult conversation in action before it happens in the actual practice.

“I was honestly blown away by the degree of professionalism, seriousness, and relevance of the workshop to me not only as a physician but also as a person. The workshop as a whole made me more aware of the many subtleties that are needed in patient-physician interactions during difficult times and I am not alone in feeling this way.”
