Suitable for healthcare professionals who are caring for palliative patients in any setting.
This experiential workshop will:
• Identify obstacles / pitfalls to breaking bad news
• Look at strategies for breaking bad news
• Discuss how to support individuals receiving bad news
• Discuss why some questions are ’difficult’
• Explore techniques for answering difficult questions
• Provide an opportunity to practice new skills
