Invite Us To Speak

CCM has conducted numerous workshops and given presentations both nationally and internationally on the subject of communication in healthcare. Our audiences have ranged from medical and nursing students and fellows, to faculty at academic medical institutions, to clinicians in practice and to hospital ethics committees. We have also offered educational programs to advocacy groups and the public through CCM’s “Good Communication is Good Medicine” community forums.

Below is a partial list of the workshops and programs CCM has conducted in the past. Please note that the topics for various speaking engagements were tailored to the specific audiences at those events.
