Who Would Benefit
This workshop is designed to give those who have to give bad news and broach difficult conversations with increased confidence. Delegates will leave the workshop with the tools and techniques to prepare them for a difficult conversation and ensure that they are supporting patients and relatives through a stressful time in their lives.
Breaking bad news is never easy but it forms a part of many healthcare professional roles.
The manner in which bad news is given can have a huge impact on the receiver. It can be so daunting and difficult that the easiest approach is to avoid it and that can often make the situation worse.
The scenarios may vary, new diagnosis, deterioration in condition or life-changing events, this workshop is designed to help you think about and prepare for different situations.
