Grant award for communication skills training package
Congratulations to Kirsten Whitehead, who has received a grant from the British Dietetic Association (BDA) General Education Trust for £8875
This will allow Kirsten to develop and evaluate an open access training package to support students and qualified dietitians who want to develop their communication skills with patients.
The training package will be based on the DIET-COMMS tool (Whitehead et al 2013, http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jhn.12136/abstract ) that Kirsten has developed and validated as part of her PhD
