Creighton Sponsors Health Care Professionals Dialogue Workshop

Health care professionals often must address complex and often polarized issues from patient safety to cross-cultural care. Creighton University’s Werner Institute and The Public Conversations Project are offering a dialogue workshop that offers ways to create constructive conversations on diverse views especially around the health care environment. The workshop on April 13 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. will be held at the Becic Dining Room at Creighton University’s Medical Center, 601 N. 30th St.

Participants will learn:

  •  Techniques of inquiry as a balance to advocacy
  •  Ways to create “safe” space for difficult conversations
  •  Methods of crafting questions with purpose and impact
  •  Applications of dialogue to the health care environment, and more.

This one-day seminar can be useful to leaders of non-profits, practitioners, ethicists, managers, community and public health professionals and consumer advocates. Six continuing education credits are available from the Nebraska Nurses Association for this seminar. Space is limited due to the interactive nature of the workshop. Participants must register by calling the Werner Institute at 280-3852. The fee for attending the workshop is $120; students can attend for $40.
