Author: AZAR PIRDEHGHAN*, MAHMOOD VAKILI, MASOUD MIRZAEI, MEHRAN KARIMI
Abstract: Doctor-patient relationship has always played an important role in medical practice. To measure the effect of communication skills training by evaluating experience of medical students after intervention and 3 months follow up. Sixty students of Medical Sciences participated in this single-blind randomized study. The intervention was communication skills training during a three day workshop with a total of 18 hours of training. The tool for assessment was interpersonal and communication skills checklist based on standardized patient. The mean score of communication skills in the intervention group was 4.36 scores higher than the control group after intervention and 3.7 scores higher after three months follow up. Although this difference reduced in follow up, it was still statistically different (P <0.05). The results of the study showed that communication skills training program in the form of a week-long workshops enhanced skills in the intervention group in comparison with the control group. Three months after the intervention, the effects of training still remained. Considering the lack of communication skills training in the curriculum of medical students, it is recommended that this subject be included in the curriculum.
