This conference is aimed at equipping nurses and allied health professionals with the knowledge and a better understanding, of what the diagnosis of a blood and lymphatic cancer means to the patient.
This conference has been accredited with 6 RCN study hours and is aimed at equipping nurses and allied health professionals with the knowledge and a better understanding, of what the diagnosis of a blood and lymphatic cancer means to the patient. In turn, this will enable those professionals in contact with patients to deliver a higher standard of care.
The conference will contribute to the development of key skills, including communication, understanding of patient experience and knowledge of some disease types. By presenting talks from well-established professionals in the field of communications, disease types and quality of life issues, with the stories of patients themselves, the day will cover all aspects of a nurses day to day role, and the issues they inevitably face.
By building on the skillset of health professionals, we hope to improve the experience patients have on the journey of their diagnosis and treatment. Nurses will be better equipped to provide support, empathise with the patient, listen and respect the patients’ wishes, as well as deliver high quality medical care.
