The Cancer Council in conjunction with RACGP Victoria New Fellows Committee is proud to present Effective Cancer Communication (ECC) program.
The ECC program delivers best practice communication skills education to health professionals, non-clinical staff and volunteers. Effective communication fosters patient autonomy within health services and enables supportive relationships with cancer patients and their families.
Through experiential learning in a small group setting of up to 8 participants with a simulated patient (actor), participants explore and receive feedback on personal communication challenges in a safe environment.
This course has been developed for clinical staff and provides a practical, evidence-based conceptual framework.
Cost: $120 RACGP members, $225 non-members.
- Explore emotional reactions to cancer through experiential learning with simulated patients.
