The Center for Patients and Families at Augusta University Health will be hosting several virtual workshops in September and October geared to enhance the patient and family experience.

The E3: Culture Transformation workshops are designed to teach AU Health employees how to use emotional intelligence and empathy in their communication, especially when using the Augusta University Medical Center’s service models AIDET and ACT.

Participants will explore the various techniques on how to understand and manage emotions and human behavior to have successful encounters with others. The training is one of the many ways AU Health is creating a culture of making an impact on every person, every encounter, every time.

Each session will be held online using the video conferencing tool Webex, and workshop dates and links are listed below:

1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16
1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 30                                                                         
1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14
1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28
