COURSE DESCRIPTION / AIMS
This two-day workshop is designed for Managers and Executives in the Community Care sector to equip them with the knowledge and skills to steer the crisis communication response for their organization. Using the 4P framework – Principles, Process, Plan and Practice, the learner will understand the principles of crisis communication, learn the process of effective response during a crisis, develop a crisis communication plan and practice developing key messages and communication materials. The workshop goes beyond managing the media to look at communicating with all important stakeholders in a Community Care facility (eg. Patients and their families, staff and volunteers).
Learners will be introduced to clear, confident and empathetic language when communicating to all internal and external stakeholders during a crisis, so as to gain trust. They will also learn how to engage the media and respond effectively to the media and social media.
