“When the other members of our clinical leadership team and I began discussing the need for a soft skills training for our Organ Procurement Coordinators (OPCs), Hedi Aguiar's name came up almost immediately.  We'd gotten such good feedback from our Family Advocate and Hospital Development staff in the past for cultural sensitivity training as well as the physician's communication workshop that she had developed. 

 

Our OPC staff is very seasoned with the median employment of 7 years in that role.  Because of that along with limited soft skill training in the recent past, we saw a need for a workshop that would provide our staff with a better understanding of the impact that their thoughts, words, and behaviours had on both internal and external customers.  To quote an OPC, 'This was the best workshop that I've had in 24 years of nursing'.  The combination of slides, video, and interaction kept staff engaged throughout.  I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone in the OPO world!”
