“It is important to take a deep breath, think a little beforehand, frame the discussion, and take your time”
Program to Enhance Relational and Communication Skills(PERCS) Neurology Workshops use a case scenario methodology to enhance communication skills by neurology residents in a consultation setting. The rotating curriculum for this course involves scenarios focused on informing the families of patients about the changing aspects of their child’s neurologic situation and prognosis. The scenarios portray typical family meetings as a child’s neurologic course progresses. Each workshop offers didactic presentations, realistic enactments with professional actors, videotape feedback and debriefing, and group discussion. Videotaping will permit the participants to assess their skills in communicating difficult and often uncertain information, and together seek areas of improvement to benefit their care of patients and families. Participants are encouraged to reflect on their personal and professional experience, and how that can influence their approach to communicating with patients and families.
