Role-play topics

Explore challenges

Role-play is an effective, experiential way for the whole group to explore communication problems and challenges. By sharing observations, comments and feedback, observers can learn as much as the people who are engaged in the role-play.

Participants will gain the most if role-play scenarios are as true to real-life clinical situations as possible.
