The SAGE & THYME Foundation Level Training Programme teaches core skills of dealing with people in distress.

Psychological distress is common among patients, their families and their carers. Effective communication is widely regarded as being a key factor in determining a patient’s satisfaction, compliance with treatment and recovery.

This free course helps health care professionals to:

  • Recognise psychological distress
  • Empower patient and carers who are worried or distressed
  • Avoid causing psychological harm
  • Communicate honestly and compassionately
  • Know when they have reached the boundary of their competence.
