Johnson & Johnson Vision logoThis session is delivered in partnership with Johnson & Johnson Vision.

Delegates will benefit from an AOP peer review led by members of the AOP clinical & regulatory team and enhance their skills with an interactive discussion workshop with Johnson & Johnson Vision.

This discussion workshop session focuses on helping participants to enhance their awareness of the language they use and the impact it has on patients and colleagues. Practitioners will consider how a simple choice of words can make a difference between the same message being received in a positive or negative way. They will learn a practical approach which can help them to utilise the power of words to inspire those they interact with and increase their communication influence for the benefit of patient care.
