In improvised theatre and comedy, scenes and
stories are created ‘in the moment’ – there is no
script and no plan. To do this, players need to
support each other, to listen (and listen again,
and again), to accept what they are given, and to
support each other when things go awry. Sound
familiar? These are all the ‘non-technical’ and
listening skills that doctors need to develop in
order to work effectively with patients, their
families and colleagues.
This symposium is an experiential day to learn about medical improv and how you might use it in your clinical practice and your teaching. Aimed at doctors of all grades and specialties.
