Community Oncology webinar series 2021


Dates: Every Wednesday from 24 February to 24 March 2021

Time: 13:00 - 14:00 via Zoom

This free series of webinars is designed for GPs and primary health care teams but will also be relevant to anyone involved in diagnosing and understanding the care pathways for lung cancer, colorectal cancer, skin cancer and cancer of unknown origin.

Following the success of the Community Oncology short course in 2019, this series of virtual sessions has been developed by the continued collaboration between Dr Fiona Rawlinson, Consultant in Palliative Medicine and Programme Director of Postgraduate Palliative Medicine at Cardiff University,  Dr Mick Button, Oncologist at Velindre Cancer Centre and Dr Elise Lang, Macmillan GP, North Cardiff. Each session will last for an hour.

We're also delighted to welcome a panel of expert external speakers, including GPs and oncologists, who will join us to discuss specific topics. Full details below.

In each session, we will be looking at questions such as when to worry, what to do next, what to do when this is a late diagnosis, and how to support the patient and their family.

The final session (Tools of the trade: Communication) will be led by Dr Fiona Rawlinson and is an in-depth look at a communication skills toolkit to help you to break bad news, manage uncertainty, and manage denial, collusion and conflict.
