Doctors' Advancing Interpersonal Skills (DAIS) Program

Category 1 Active Learning Module

In response to requests from GPs who have undertaken the Doctors’ Interpersonal Skills Questionnaire (DISQ) as a clinical audit, CFEP has developed the DAIS Program.

CFEP has received approval from the RACGP QA & CPD Program for a 40 CATEGORY 1 POINTS Active Learning Module called the Doctors’ Advancing Interpersonal Skills (DAIS) Program.

DAIS contains 10 hours of CPD activity, which can be completed in your own time and at your own pace.

DAIS consists of a workbook and a 90-minute DVD containing segments of recorded GP consultations with patients.

The GP is required to complete a brief written pre-test, read the workbook and watch examples of GP consultations provided in the video. They should reflect on their interpersonal skills by recording their responses to exercises in the workbook. This is then followed up with a brief written post-test to complete the activity.
