Dentist-Patient Interaction and Communication Skills Workshop
This 2 full day workshop focuses on helping participants develop patient centred interactions and communication skills that will aid them in their practice and in preparing for the MFDS Part Two Examination.
There will be lectures and discussions covering history taking, explaining special tests, explaining diagnosis and prognosis, discussing treatment options and treatment planning, consent taking, breaking bad news and handling complaints.
Very importantly, the workshop will also include practice objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) stations together with a mock OSCE circuit depicting a wide array of clinical scenarios.
To fully benefit from this workshop, participants should already possess the expected basic knowledge in the relevant fields in dentistry as outlined in the MFDS Part 2 exam syllabus at the level of a practicing dentist.
