Conversation-Analytic Role-Play Method (CARM) is an internationally recognised method of professional communication teaching. CARM uses audio and video recordings of real-time, actual encounters to identify conversational problems and roadblocks as well as effective practices for avoiding and resolving them. The Faculty of Medicine and Health Science invites all Macquarie staff to a one day free workshop on CARM conducted by internationally recognised expert Dr Rein Sikveland, as part of a three day program.
