Select PEP evaluation comments:
"It was actually much better than I thought it would be. I think it was great to meet other physicians and everyone there seemed into role-playing which made it all more enjoyable."
"Although I was initially resistant to a day long course like this and believed that communication skills come naturally to many of us, I did learn something through the process. I think the role play did help us in the way of "muscle memory" but also gave us insight into the patient experience when asked to play their role as well. It was also nice to interact with physicians in other departments and reflect on all our unique challenges."
"The facilitators were wonderful in their presentation of material, interaction with participants and respect for the diverse settings in which participants work. I picked up several useful tips and enjoyed interacting with peers from different disciplines."
"Physician facilitators were outstanding."
"Small group format made it interactive and even fun."
"Our facilitators were outstanding. They presented the information in a clear and concise manner, made good use of slides and poster boards, and engaged the participants in meaningful discussions. It was time well spent."
"I appreciated having CME, breakfast, and lunch served. It was cool meeting faculty from other departments and hearing their perspectives."
