Why should I take this course?
This micro skills course from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health 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.
Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?
Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
Unless otherwise stated, certificates issued through Talisium are not qualifications of any formal assessment.
Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?
Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.
