NTC: Explorer Dental Series: Course description:
Healthcare workers share common goals of patient safety and professional communication, often missing the critical link between the two. Effective communication between roles and disciplines directly impacts the ability to resolve conflict, make decisions in practice, and collaborate as a productive healthcare team. Various leadership styles can engage staff as change agents, and encourage the cooperation necessary for management of a positive and safe workplace, while minimizing incidents of incivility.
