Blue Stream Academy have something new for you!

14 August 2019

Communication despite our best intentions, can hamper or build relationships with each other. Sometimes what we say, how we say it and the actions we display, can lead to misunderstanding, frustration and on occasion, conflict.

BSA have a new communications module for you! Communication training can reduce the barriers to effective communication, leading to successful relations between both colleagues and service users.

Their ‘Communication’ module covers topics including:

• Types of communication
• Successful communication
• Barriers to effective communication
• Reducing barriers to effective communication
• Confidentiality

This module is due for release on Tuesday 27th August 2019, however if you would like any information on the learning outcomes or how to access this module upon release, contact Blue Stream Academy by email for more information!

Ensure you include your practice name and telephone number in the email and state your LMC Buying Group Membership.
