Program to Enhance Relational & Communication Skills (PERCS) - Radiology
Radiologists face increasing expectations to communicate directly with patients, but few educational opportunities exist to help radiologists feel prepared and confident in their communication skills. PERCS - Radiology is a course that offers radiology physicians (including residents, fellows and attendings), nurses, and technologists the opportunity to learn about helpful communication skills and relational abilities when having difficult conversations with patients about: 1) new, unexpected or difficult diagnoses; 2) radiological errors; and 3) radiation safety. Each day-long workshop combines didactic and educational media presentations with realistic improvised enactments between workshop participants and professional actors. Faculty facilitators include experts in healthcare communication pedagogy. The learning model emphasizes group collaboration among professionals of varying experiences, perspectives from patient and family representatives, and a safe environment that respects multiple viewpoints.

The next PERCS – Radiology course will be held on Saturday, May 30, 2015 from 8:45am-3:30pm at Boston Children’s Hospital in Waltham, Massachusetts. This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM) and the Institute for Professionalism & Ethical Practice. TUSM is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. TUSM designates this live activity for a maximum of 5.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. This activity meets the criteria of the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine for 3 hours of Risk Management Credit.
