Fight, Flight and Insight: Professional Conversations in Collaborative Practice

Who we are influences our perceptions and judgments of others - a key feature in how we manage personal and professional relationships. Integrated approaches to challenging peer to peer dynamics demand self-awareness and complex communication skills. Communication is an essential component in building productive collegial relationships, inter-professional teams and in turn, patient safety.

This workshop will help learners:

  1. Examine our responses to workplace tensions.
  2. Gain an understanding of how attribution theory informs our judgments and assumptions
  3. Practice different communication approaches to challenging professional situations
