EACH Forum on Healthcare Communication

Home Programme Workshops Summer School Register Useful information Sponsors


The EACH Forum on Healthcare Communication (formerly the EACH Summer Event) provides an excellent opportunity for the community of healthcare researchers, educators & practitioners to retreat for a period of intensive interactive learning with colleagues from around the world.

The event is structured as a series of high-quality, HALF-DAY WORKSHOPS which will not only share knowledge but, importantly, provide new & practical skills. Also on offer are 2 inspirational plenaries & great opportunities for collaboration & networking which include a welcome drinks reception, event dinner and POSTER EXHIBITION with ORAL PITCHES.

Amongst the 15 different workshops available to participants this year, we are delighted to offer a Research workshop by Dr Orit Karnieli-Miller (Tel Aviv University, Israel) on Breaking Bad News: Exploring the Benefit of Triangulating Between Different Tools and Methods; a Teaching workshop by Professor Edvin Schei (University of Bergen, Norway) on Close Encounters with the Sick: A Method for Facilitating Human Connection; and a Policy & Practice workshop by Professor Kathryn Pollak (Duke Cancer Institute, USA) on Coaching to Help Clinicians Improve Their Communication.
