Free communications training: ICC at City of Hope

From City of Hope:

Interprofessional Communication Curriculum (ICC) is a new professional training program funded by the National Cancer Institute that focuses on communication training in oncology. Organized by the eight domains of the National Consensus Project Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care, ICC is a train-the-trainer course for interprofessional clinician teams to help prepare them to provide communication skills training at their home institutions. This free three-day course is designated for teams of two clinicians consisting of nurses, chaplains or social workers who work in adult oncology. The two team members must be from different disciplines (e.g., a nurse and a social worker). All ICC courses will include skill-building exercises and interactive discussions to assist participants in integrating communication training into their clinical settings. Using a goal-directed method of teaching, ICC’s interdisciplinary faculty will assist teams in developing three institutional goals for providing communication skills training to others.
