Dear MEDLIB-L members,

Our Education Department staff are working on a project to train the
"Patient Relations Officers" (PRO's). It's common in the UAE hospitals to
organize a Patient Relations Dept. to communicate and interact between the
hospital staff and the patients.

I did a search on PubMed and used "Hospital-Patient Relations" heading
through MeSH. Non of the results met with what the Education staff need.

Have you ever heard about this kind of training programs? Do you have a job
description for PRO?
Any recommendations, information, URL's are highly appreciated.

Thanks in advanced for your responses
