EPIC workshops

EPIC is the Effective Peri-Procedural Communication interest group within SPANZA. 

EPIC aims to provide language, communication and imaginative techniques for every child, every time they have a medical procedure.  The EPIC workshops teach these techniques to help health professionals engage with children and their families and enhance their ability to manage medical procedures.

The learning on the course is interactive and experiential. Background knowledge is provided prior to the course in an e-learning format which covers the basic principles and provides examples of techniques used. These techniques will then be taught experientially in the course. Access to the e-learning course will be opened 2 weeks prior to the workshops.

Currently there is a number of courses scheduled this year, if you would like your centre to run an EPIC course, please contact us for more info.
