New eLearning series on Communications for Patient Advocacy!

To mark World Brain Day, the European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA) has launched a new eLearning course on ‘Communications for Patient Advocacy’.

The course is the latest in EFNA’s digital ‘Training Initiatives for Neurology Advocates’ (TINA) programme, which also includes courses on topics such as EU Funding and Personalised Healthcare.

The ‘Communications for Patient Advocacy’ series is presented by Melissa Curley, owner of communications training company SocialBe. The series is divided into three modules – Communicating with impact, Communicating persuasively and Presentation skills for public speaking.

Over 60 minutes, Melissa shares key insights, tools and strategies that will empower you to communicate with confidence, poise and clarity, so that you can successfully advocate for yourself or your community.

The modules are video-based and divided into sections that can be watched independently at times that suit the viewer. Each module includes supporting notes, as well as the option to take a quiz on the content and receive a personalised certificate of completion.
Courses are in English, but subtitles in other languages can be enabled.

EFNA’s e-learning modules are free to access, though registration is required.
