Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Gibraltar last year fully sponsored 2 projects on behalf of the Cancer Relief Gibraltar. The first project was towards specialised training course (Professional and Specialised Advanced Communication Training), training course to be carried out by facilitators/trainers from the Maguire Communication Skills Training Unit, Manchester, to GHA Healthcare Personnel, Healthcare practitioners, Hospital Doctors, GP’s, Nurses and Allied Health Care professionals. The 1-day course, done over 2 days to accommodate the number of attendees were completed last week with excellent feedback from GHA and from the UK facilitators/trainers.
The course focused on:
- Communicating diagnosis, treatment outcomes etc. with care, compassion, dignity and respect
- Dealing with patients’ and family emotions
- Involving patients’ in decision making and ensuring their level of understanding about their condition
- Listening to individual concerns, care preferences and respecting their choices
The 1-day courses were completed on 14th & 15th, the cost of the 1st day fully met by the Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Gibraltar.
