The study day explored frequently forgotten themes designed to equip specialist clinicians and clinical specialist nurses with in-depth knowledge and skills to inform critical decision-making for complex acute oncology patients.
Talks covered the challenges of communicating risk and uncertainty in the acute oncology setting; exploring the benefits & burdens of surgical interventions in the acute oncology patient and how to decide on the appropriateness of critical interventions used.
In the afternoon there was a short session covering communication skills needed in these difficult conversations.
The feedback was outstanding from all delegates, attending from Trusts all over the region and even from Birmingham. 100% of attendees felt the outcomes of the event had been achieved and 100% were satisfied with the event.
Delegates commented: “All speakers were passionate and knew their subject matter. Good learning environment. Good opportunity for discussions” and “Really useful & clinically relevant. Thank you.”
The event will be delivered again in Spring next year so keep an eye out for details!
