Exploring ideas and strategies in teaching caring and compassion in English

The session provides a valuable insight for any teachers who are currently working on English in healthcare. Loredana talks about the importance of teaching soft skills in healthcare degree courses where compassion and caring are the milestones. Loredana shares her experience as language expert at the University of Verona, where her courses in communication skills are complemented with public speaking and academic writing.

6th English for Healthcare Accommodation – B&B or Half Board

We have arranged bed and breakfast accommodation at the Brighton University campus*, a 10-minute walk from the conference venue for anyone who would like to stay there. This offers great convenience as well as being significantly cheaper than most other alternatives. The rooms are a short walk from the university train station (Falmer) and local bus stops. Those driving can also park close to the accommodation at a low price.
