Course overview

Learning practical skills to deal with difficult situations and demanding patients

Visits between doctors and patients can sometimes be complex and difficult. Difficult Doctor Patient Relationships is designed to provide new approaches to work through difficult encounters.

Dealing with ‘difficult’ patients and situations is a regular occurrence in general and specialist practice and something that can often prove very frustrating.

Many articles have been written about working with ‘difficult’ patients. However, sometimes the difficulty is more in the relationship. To experience effective and positive consultations doctors ultimately need to respond in a constructive way to difficult situations.

The Difficult Doctor Patient Relationships workshop challenges doctors to examine the patterns of interactions with patients that cause them the greatest difficulty and to develop communication strategies within an interactive, experiential context.

Learning new approaches for working with these situations is facilitated by the exploration of video case scenarios. Each case presents a unique difficulty, but one that is faced by most doctors at some time during their careers.
