Precept2Practice: (Re)Teaching Professional Communication

Precept2Practice: (Re)Teaching Professional Communication

Communication is ‘an essential duty’ of a pharmacist and the cornerstone of quality patient care. And yet, it continues to be one of the most common frustrations reported by preceptors when working with students and residents. Many factors may be at play, including a pandemic, as well as a digital society where so much communication happens in quick, abbreviated bytes.

On this episode, guest Christine Klein reminds us of the many facets of communication, the complex range of reasons some students and residents may struggle, and how we as mentors and teachers can support their development in this area effectively.

Upon successful completion of this course, learners should be able to:
1. Discuss the importance of strong communication skills for students and residents
2. Describe the preceptor’s role in fostering professional communication
