Providing training and education for physicians can take various forms.

For licensed providers, creating continuing education courses can provide an educational forum that takes advantage of their licensure requirements and creates an opportunity for more intense learning outside of the clinical environment. Continuing education can take place at conferences and workshops, or through CE centers. Additionally, education can take place within the clinical setting through grand rounds, staff meetings, retreats, HR development programs, brown bag discussions, leadership development courses, and internal newsletters, websites and journals. From within the health care organization, education in conflict management can occur through integration of facilitation and mediation techniques into patient safety processes such as root cause analysis, process reviews, failure modes and effects analysis, disclosure conversations with patients, and team care conferences. Finding multiple ways to integrate skill development and process understanding into currently existing health care activities is essential to the successful development of the field of health care alternative dispute resolution.
