Interpersonal skills training for optometry students: What should be taught?
In recent years, greater recognition has been given to the need to systematically train optometry students in specific interpersonal skills. One difficulty facing the teacher responsible for such a program is to decide what skills need to be taught. It is the purpose of this paper to review research on health professionals’ interpersonal skills and to provide a theoretical basis for the selection of material to be included in a program for optometry students. From this basis, specific recommendations on the necessary skills will be made.
