ASLIAQ – 2021 – June – “I have some bad news for you…” Interpreting bad news in a medical setting

Livestreamed

Hosted by ASLIAQ

12/06/2021 | Starts: 9:00 am | Ends: 11:00 am | Venue: Zoom

Proudly sponsored by Auslan Connections.

Have you ever been working in a medical setting and found yourself having to interpret some bad news? Or even had to break some bad news to someone on a personal level? Is there ever a ‘right’ way to do it?

Join us online on Saturday, June 12, to discover how medical students are taught to communicate with their patients; if they have certain scripts they use, key language to either use or avoid, or even what other considerations there are in such scenarios. 

Our presenter, Dr Jenny Fitzgerald, is a clinical psychologist and co-director of the Australian Centre for Emotionally Focussed Therapy (EFT), where she treats distressed couples and individuals with mental health difficulties. She has worked part time for almost 20 years in the University of Queensland School of Medicine, teaching clinical communication skills to medical students. Jenny is committed to helping health professionals give compassionate care to patients and their partners and families, especially when they are receiving bad news, coping with difficult treatment or grieving the loss of a loved one. 

This will no doubt be a fascinating insight into the thought worlds and processes of medical practitioners and is not to be missed!
