Description

This webinar will be hosted by Dr Melanie Benson, Clinical Lead Palliative Care Clinical Network, and is part of the Clinical Conversations Webinar series, designed for patients, their families, and clinicians to share lived experiences and discuss learnings.

Effectively communicating bad news with respect, empathy and compassion is a skill that is rarely taught but often necessary in healthcare. Adopting a person-centred approach to challenging conversations results in a better experience for the patient and their family and can have lasting effects for those hearing the bad news.
