Virtual Hug 1: - Patient Care
Virtual Hug 2: - Client and Community Care.
Accessible, 1 CPD point accredited, 50 minute course focusing on technical hosting confidence and soft skills, for video consulations.
Which course should I take?
Virtual Hug is ideal for kick starting good remote consulting habits, and for those new to, or less experienced in remote consulting. It will help you smooth out some of the technical challenges and give you a solid understanding of how to deliver a good remote consultation experience.
If you are a more experienced or confident clinician who is seeking clarification on safe and best practice from a clinical perspective then 'The Principles of Remote Consultation' is the one for you.
Can I or should I do both courses?
Yes you can, if you do, we recommend doing Virtual Hug first.
Which Virtual Hug should I do? Do I do both?
You just do one, they are the same course, except the scenarios and language in 'Patient Care' are more focussed on GP/Consultant conversations, where as as Virtual Hug 2 refers to 'Clients' and the scenarios are community care related, like OT's and Mental Health.
