161241 - Practice Pearl 5: Counselling and survivorship of patients with melanoma

  • : Online

The Practice Pearls are a series of easy-to-digest resources for busy GPs and other medical, nursing and allied professionals who are not specialised in the treatment of melanoma. They have a strong diagnostic and practical management emphasis to help you gain a better understanding of the disease.

Relevance to General Practice

Good communication is the foundation of strong trusting relationships between patients and their doctors, and all clinicians can build upon their communication skills. In this module, we examine communications strategies in cancer consultations and arm you with practical tools for difficult conversations. We also look at the psychosocial impact of cancer on the patient and their loved ones, and discuss how you can help your patients.

Learning outcomes
  • ? Apply principles of effective and empathic communication in difficult conversations with patients diagnosed with melanoma.
  • ? Assess the psychosocial impact of melanoma on patients, their families and carers
  • ? Provide psychological interventions to optimise patient safety and wellbeing
