This course introduces students to patient-centered communication, knowledge, and applications related to enhancing rapport in pediatric PT and OT settings. The course covers the development of the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor aspects of patient-centered communication, and also addresses the importance of respecting and learning effective patient-centered communication as defined by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The applicable audience is pediatric PT and OT clinicians working in hospitals, clinics, schools, or home-based settings with children and their families/caregivers.
