Communication Skills in Young People
This micro skills course covers some of the basic principles of communication skills that are important when dealing with patients of any age, but are particularly relevant to young people who are experiencing changes in their appearance, the way they think, or their relationships with parents and friends. It focuses on the need to adapt communication to fit with the language and cognitive skills of the young person, which will change as they go through adolescence.
