ENRICH Healthcare Communication Course


June 11-13, 2021 | Austin, TX | AT&T Executive Education & Conference Center

The Academy of Communication in Healthcare uses evidence, expertise and passion to strategically develop relationship-centered communication with patients and peers in organizations across the country. Esteemed healthcare organizations and academic medical centers have partnered with ACH to develop their staff and leaders to form the most meaningful relationships. ACH's 38th annual course, ENRICH, offers an intimate opportunity to learn those very skills that can help you engage your team, patients, and peers from a different perspective.

Over the course of 2.5 days, participants will intensively engage in interactive workshops and intimate small groups that teach strategic communication skills for healthcare professionals and clinicians. These skills offer a powerful paradigm for transforming relationships- and thus team effectiveness and outcomes- in the healthcare landscape.

We understand this is a turbulent time with many uncertainties of safety, travel bans, funding, and more. The safety and wellness of our attendees is of utmost priority so ACH will continue to monitor the effects of the pandemic.
