- Good Practice, by Marie MacCullagh and Ros Wright, is an Upper Intermediate (B2) to Advanced (C1) resource for doctors and medical students who need to communicate with patients in English. Good Practice focuses on the language and communication skills that doctors need to make consultations more effective through a focus on five elements of good communication: verbal communication, active listening, voice management, non-verbal communication and cultural awareness. The resource looks at how to sensitively handle a range of situations such as taking a patient history, breaking bad news, examining a patient and describing treatment options. It also prepares doctors for dealing with different types of patient, from children to the elderly.
The resource also contains content from the Good Practice DVD. Each sequence has accompanying activities to enable learners to get the most out of the range of doctor-patient consultations that they observe. These include the presenting complaint, taking a medical history, examining a patient, breaking bad news and communicating with challenging patients. As well as consolidating language and communication strategies presented in Good Practice, the video activities allow learners to explore further the importance and impact of non-verbal communication.
