Overview

The most important element in effective managing and leadership is good communication. Effective communication is all about conveying your messages to other people clearly and unambiguously. It is also about receiving information that others are sending to you, with as little distortion as possible. This is important for everyone, but even more so if you are a health professional.

This online micro-credential outlines the principles of effective communication, and identifies techniques in communication including conflict resolution and communicating with influence in health care.

This is a non-creditable micro-credential which is awarded a digital badge and Certificate of Completion which can be shared to your social networks and displayed in your professional portfolio
