  • Title: Education - American Academy on Communication in Healthcare
    Descriptive info: Education.. Every day, clinicians care for patients who have perplexing, unpredictable and fatal illnesses.. Serious illness and uncertainty provoke distress in patients and in their clinicians.. The suffering patients endure is often intense, and current medical science may seem incomprehensible to them.. Patients and families complain that they feel distanced from a traditional source of comfort and education-their clinicians.. The American Academy on Communication in Healthcare offers faculty development courses, e-learning and on-site opportunities providing basic and advanced workshops which might form the basis for a continuing curriculum within an organization.. On request, AACH will also train on-site facilitators and liaison persons in a "train-the-trainer" model.. AACH courses and workshops provide general principles, specific techniques and reflective time that will support clinicians' efforts to cope with diverse challenges to their humanity, integrity and ingenuity.. The learner-centered AACH courses are engaging and effective:.. A recent course participant wrote, "…I regret I didn't incorporate these techniques into my style thirty years ago.. Keep offering your courses to anyone who will come for a 'practice enhancing moment!'".. Another  ...   in communication is not highly valued.. Some clinicians think they communicate well and perceive little benefit from further guidance.. Others maximize their study of science and technology and minimize or ignore the inherent difficulties of communicating about these complex and disquieting matters..

The rationale and implementation of the AACH approach to enhancing physicians' interview effectiveness was explored in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.. * Through similar scholarly efforts spanning more than three decades, Academy members have advanced knowledge through publication of high quality basic and applied research on the medical interview..
