This class for physicians is about body language and will provide you with a set of skills to understand that what is not said is just as important as what is said. 

It will also give you the ability to see and understand how your own body language is perceived. You will learn to adjust and improve the way you communicate through non-verbal communications.

Can you tell if someone is telling the truth just by looking at them? It is a skill most people do not have.  In this course, you will be given a set of tools to use and understand body language. These tools can be utilized in the hospital, office and at home. When you understand body language, you have a great advantage in your daily communications with patients, staff and colleagues.

Physicians who recognise the role of body language in managing patient care can communicate better and  improve patient safety and increase patient satisfaction. 

You must download the free guidebook that accompanies this course to continue with your studies.
