Hi,
PEARLS: partnership, empathy, appreciation (and apology, when appropriate), respect, legitimation and support.

I did not take the exam yet but I think that what they want from us in the new format is to improve the communication part with the patients.
Unfortunately this exam had became a checklist were people were probably mechanically going through just to make sure to score points, which is not the meaning of the step 2CS examination.
