Dr. Martyn Williamson. MBBS, FRNZCGP, DRCOG, Dip GP (dist)

Martyn has been in rural General Practice since 1986. He has a longstanding interest in education and currently works half time as a senior lecturer at the Department of General Practice and Rural Health at Dunedin medical school. In that role he is involved with both undergraduate and postgraduate education. He is a co-designer of the Safe and Effective Clinical Outcomes clinic, which provides simulated GP experiences for medical students prior to their placements. He also co convenes two postgraduate papers, Teaching and Learning in Medical Practice and the Nature of Medical Practice. He is a certified trainer for ‘Crucial Conversations’ which is a methodology that deals with communication in challenging situations. He has also trained as a life coach and most recently obtained certification as a coach in NLP, which is where the idea for the course “healing with words” was generated.

Liz Williamson. BDS

Liz is a practicing dentist currently studying in Lifestyle Medicine certification with the Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine (ASLM). She has always placed communication with  patients as high on her list of priorities when providing what is commonly a stressful treatment for them. Over a 30 year career Liz has found this approach minimises stress for both and has allowed her to establish common goals with patients to best achieve relevant ,safe and effective treatment outcomes .Liz is trained in Life Coaching, hypnotherapy and NLP, all of which have proven useful to her approach so far.

What you will learn on this course

​Maintaining respect for patients in challenging circumstances​.

This is based on Rogers’ concept of unconditional positive regard (UPR) and is of value when dealing with all sorts of tricky situations including being able to say no to requests and demands with which we aren’t comfortable.

Dealing with patient anxieties.

We will all have had the experience of feeling coerced into making referrals for investigations and specialist services that we don’t really believe is in the patient’s best interest and other circumstances where a person’s anxiety gets in the way of optimal care.

The power of language.

We will learn to utilise the placebo response and avoid the nocebo response when talking to patients about prognosis for disease and side effects as part of informed consent.

Functional Illness

We will explore ways of talking to patients with unexplainable symptoms and who frequently induce that heart sink feeling. We will also look at talking to patients with ‘functional illness’ in ways which maximise their chances of resolution of symptoms. 

Solution focused

We will learn to help patients to focus on what they actually want and how to motivate them to take positive steps in order to improve their health

Taking your tools to practise

All our topics will have key skills outlined which you can take away and use in practice. 

We will be providing a course book so you have a record of these for reference later. 

The course will finish off with a review of some examples of challenging situations that you have faced and we will workshop these utilising these new skills. An important feature will be the active involvement of participants in practising new skills to help embed their use. 

The excitement for us is bringing together a number of different techniques with a focus on the medical consultation in a way which makes a difference.
