    Good Practice

    Good Practice is an online course – based on the leading medical English text from Cambridge University Press –  for doctors and medical students who need to communicate with patients in English.

    Good Practice focuses on the language and communication skills that doctors need to make consultations more effective, through a focus on five elements of good communication:

    • verbal communication
    • active listening
    • voice management
    • non-verbal communication
    • cultural awareness

    The course teaches learners how to handle a range of situations sensitively and covers such topics as:

    • patient history
    • breaking bad news
    • examining a patient
    • describing treatment options
    • different types of patients, from children to the elderly

    With reference to numerous medical communication experts, and through exposure to authentic clinical scenarios, the course demonstrates the impact of good communication on the doctor-patient relationship and enables students to become confident and effective practitioners in English.

    Features of the course include:

    • Videos with Interactive Captioning. Over 40 interactive video lessons, with bilingual transcripts and in-context definitions;
    • Vocabulary Training.  Vocabulary learning based on a set of 300 key medical-related words and phrases, including fill in the blank activities and quizzes;
    • Speaking Practice.  Interactive speaking practice allowing for productive use of such vocabulary in context.
    • GoLive! An option for live 1:1 tutoring, each with a lesson plan (see sample)
    Developed by authors Marie McCullagh and Ros Wright for English users of CEFR level B2-C1, Good Practice has won the BESIG David Riley Award for Innovation in Business English in 2008 and was also shortlisted for the 2008 British Council Innovation Awards.

      “One more thing I would like to say is that instead of trying to fit all your online degree programs on times that you end work (since most people are drained when they get home), try to have most of your instructional classes on the weekends and only one or two courses in weekdays, even if it means a little time off your end of the week. This pays off because on the weekends, you will be extra rested and concentrated for school work. Thanks a bunch for the different ideas I have learned from your website.”
