ONLINE COURSE
Breaking Bad News

 

Dates: Tuesday 26th April 2022, Thursday 8th September 2022, Wednesday 9th November 2022.

In a healthcare context, breaking bad news involves the giving of health-related information that negatively alters the individual’s perception or expectations of their present and/or future. Breaking bad news can also be seen as a process that involves preparing the patient for bad news, providing support, explaining information and helping the patient come to terms with the implications of the news they have been given. This study day will provide an opportunity to reflect on the role of the Healthcare Practitioner (HCP) in the process of breaking bad news. The day will explore the challenges faced by HCP’s when they are involved in breaking bad news and consider how these can be addressed.

All sessions will be delivered live via MS Teams.

Target Audience

All Healthcare Professionals.

Facilitators

Clare Warnock & Rachel Mead, Practice Development Sisters and Specialist Nurses from the Palliative Care Team.
