Psychiatric Consultation

Dealing with Relatives

Relatives present a different set of issues, such as opposing a management plan, talking over the patient, consent, confidentiality or just the unforeseen. Patient simulation gives the opportunity to vary​​ the challenge to your exact needs.

Coping with Anger

Often when people are under stress, the emotion they display is anger, but being able to defuse that emotion and uncover the root cause is a skill every medical professional will benefit from. Patient simulation offers a safe learning environment that is impossible otherwise.

Bespoke Sessions

Sessions can be designed in co-operation with your learning needs to provide the exact outcomes you desire. Whatever the situation your staff or students face can be tackled and key skills taught to improve communication skills, the patient experience and staff moral.
