The CHUSE Communication Course  for the OSCE (Communication in Healthcare using Simulated Encounters) is a hands on communication course specifically for fellowship candidates sitting the ACEM OSCE exam.

Many of the major communication encounters are covered in a morning of up to 16 different communication stations and participants have the opportunity to practice and then be debriefed on their performance in small groups of 4-6.  Guidance is given on a structured approach to these stations and invaluable tips are provided on how to phrase some of the more difficult conversations in clinical encounters.

In the afternoon workshops and simulation sessions the participants explore a range of extra communication skills to ensure that by the end of the day the full range of possible communication encounters that may appear in the exam has been touched on.

The CHUSE  Communication for the OSCE Exam course practice sessions use a mixture of simulated patients and simulations using mannequins as is appropriate to the type of encounter.

Faculty are a mix of FACEMs, DEMTs and simulation experts who are skilled in facilitation, debrief and acting to allow true representation of the exam type communication station. Some faculty have been observers and confederates in the ACEM OSCE exam but none are examiners so no conflict of interest.

Many of the scenarios in this course have subsequently appeared in modified form in the OSCE exam over the last few years so a great way to prepare yourself for the stations that are likely to come up in your sitting.

Types of communication encounters covered

  • General good communication principles
  • Breaking bad news – to both patients and relatives
  • End of life issues
  • Aggressive patients
  • Complaints and Conflict
  • Difficult communications : child protection and domestic violence
  • Culturally appropriate communication
  • Handover and referral communication
  • Team and crisis communication
