This [activity] is great, I could use this example all the time.
I just practised it here in the office with some other people and it seems to fit and work each time. It’s a great, simple way of remembering how to de-escalate a situation.

Could you please send information about the Diploma of Leadership and Management to two of our staff members who are interested in the program?
They have both seen the wonderful work Carramar is doing with our other participants and are considering jumping on that bandwagon!

Individual Tailored Education, Enhancing Professional Practice

I found the face to face discussion extremely valuable. I could discuss any areas in medicine that I found challenging. The role play scenarios of difficult situations in general practice was a good learning experience for me. The facilitators were very knowledgeable and experienced in the topics that were discussed. They were non judgemental and treated me with the utmost respect.

I am constantly doing my best now to engage the patient, both verbally and non-verbally, and have reflected upon my style of questioning the patient. I have read and re-read the communication cycle to see if I can improve on my communication in that way.

I am actively trying to listen to the patient and firstly hearing of their real concerns, no matter how trivial they are. In fact now, upon reflection, I understand that triviality is actually irrelevant as it is completely not up to me to decide what is trivial or not.

Over the last 10 years, I have been unsure where I want my career to go and have made tentative steps towards a Nurse Unit Manager position, but have found it difficult to get traction, as there have been many setbacks and I was unsure how to get there.
I am now able to identify areas where I need to develop skills and knowledge.

This program exceeded my expectations I would not change anything. I did not feel bored for one second. The approach was non-judgemental. I felt comfortable to talk and practise strategies.

Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

Anne Morrison (Carramar Consulting) worked in collaboration with QUT to conduct an external review of the Implementation of Competency Based Curriculum in Vietnam project. The project required Carramar Consulting to conduct an in-country, field work review of the project with university partners and the Vietnam Ministry of Health. Anne Morrison was extremely thorough, organised and highly professional while conducting the review. All milestones and timelines were met ahead of schedule. It has been a pleasure working with Carramar Consulting, and in particular with Anne. I am extremely pleased that QUT was able to use the services of Carramar Consulting and would not hesitate in recommending them to others.

What I love about this course, is the practical application to our work on a daily basis. It deals with the reality of the work environment not the rhetoric. I am feeling so inspired by this course, I just can’t wait to keep going.

I still have a lot to practise, but the most important thing is that I am thinking about all these things all the time and some of them only for the first time since having done the course. I can find no negative things that I have tried to change in my practice, only positive thoughts are evident.
