GMOA to teach new docs communication skills

By Don Asoka Wijewardena

The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) Assistant Secretary Dr. Nalinda Herath said that an orientation course for interns would commence from mid November before they joined the hospitals to undergo internship training for one year.

The GMOA would train all the interns in effective communication skills, Dr. Hearth said, noting that the programme would impart both vertical and horizontal communication skills.

There had been numerous instances where patients complained against doctors due to the latter’s poor communication skills.
