Challenging Conversations in Cancer
Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceuticals Ltd and St George’s Advanced Patient Simulation Centre (GAPS) are pleased to invite you to an interactive educational session exploring ‘Challenging Conversations in Cancer’, with a focus on managing difficult conversations with patients, relatives and other members of the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) within a clinical setting.
What will we offer?
The educational simulation will use the facilities and expertise of the St George’s training centre to deliver ‘learning through application’:
· Tailored clinical scenarios commonly encountered by healthcare professionals in the Oncology department in a simulated clinical environment. The simulations are focused on lung cancer as a conduit to exploring, conversations and topics that are relevant to most oncology sub-specialties
· Opportunity to rotate through six clinical scenarios simulated by actors coupled with experienced facilitator feedback Group learning with other participants who are typically part of an oncology multi-disciplinary team in their regular practice.
Who should attend?
Anyone who participates in and/or liaises regularly with an oncology MDT, and who is an integral part of the clinical decision-making process for a patient’s diagnosis or treatment with cancer.
What kind of topics will be covered?
· How would you explain to a patient who had suffered adverse events to treatment that they were no longer on treatment for their metastatic cancer?
· How would you manage your team and liaise with multi-disciplinary colleagues to escalate care of an unwell patient with metastatic cancer to ITU?
