We will be hosting an informative and interactive one-day training day focused on advancing communication and assertiveness skills for senior nurses and allied health and social care professionals working within haemato-oncology care at Hamilton House, in London on Friday 7th February 2020.
This study day will require a £25 booking fee per person, which will include refreshments throughout the day and lunch.

- Practice skills to improve the quality of clinical communication around treatment decisions, particularly palliative and end of life care and psychological wellbeing
- Increase confidence in managing difficult conversations with patients and carers
- Build on influencing and assertiveness skills to enhance communication between colleagues and teams, such as discussing stopping treatment/death and dying, challenging colleagues and advocating for patients in a multidisciplinary team.
