This Guide aims to improve the quality of care delivered to patients, minimize risk of infection, reduce healthcare associated costs, and ultimately save lives. Participants will learn how the Guide’s 40+ authors and team of 6 editors from around the globe volunteer their time to keep the content up-to-date.

Presenting Your Work: Storytelling Skills and Techniques to Make You a Great Presenter - Scientific Storytelling - K. Rebmann (USA)

(sponsored by Sanofi Pasteur)

 

Learning Objectives - “Stories are up to 22 times more memorable than facts” - Jennifer Aaker, social psychologist and professor at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. This short course is designed to help medical professionals understand the power of sharing technical, clinical, and scientific information using a storytelling approach, which will aid in the audience’s retention of information. This session will introduce the benefits of this approach as well as the technique of using the dramatic (story) arc. This approach will allow presenters to better engage audiences, leading to a better understanding and recall of information presented.

Leadership Skills Development

Managerial Decision Making: Pitfalls and Remedies - F. de Véricourt (Germany)

 

Effective healthcare institutions need effective leaders, however, leadership development among healthcare professionals is commonly neglected. Few countries/institutions provide such leadership training as part of the medical curriculum. Most young medical professionals are prepared to make medical decisions but have to learn their leadership skills almost by trial-and-error as they are handed positions of responsibility. This session will be open to all congress attendees and will focus on managerial decision-making.

This workshop is open to registered Congress attendees at no additional cost.
No pre-registration is necessary.
