4 CPD points

Open to all with an interest in surgical training

*Update* At the present time, the Faculty will run the conference in October. We will keep you updated as COVID-19 develops.

Achieving the highest standard of patient care requires more than surgical excellence. Building trust with both patients and colleagues allows an open dialogue so that the correct level of support, re-assurance and knowledge can be shared. Leadership skills, and creating an environment of collaboration with the patient and the wider clinical team, are essential. The next annual meeting will explore all facets of communication including channels, relationships and techniques to improve.
