Takeda-Maudsley Learning Psychosocial Oncology Seminars
The cancer journey is as much psychological as it is physical and is experienced by patients and their loved ones through the lens of past experience, culture, and spirituality. Cancer is frequently associated with psychological distress and may precipitate new mental illness or disorder. The presence of psychological distress – whether pre-existing or new - may present particular challenges to treatment and recovery from cancer and add complexity to the work of clinicians in trying to provide optimal holistic care.
Takeda and Maudsley Learning have come together to create this series of Psychosocial Oncology Seminars aimed at clinicians working in oncology. These sessions are designed and delivered by mental health experts with extensive experience working in oncology and haematology.
Through highly interactive, case-based learning clinicians will acquire a range of simple psychological skills to work with patients in need at different stages of their cancer journey. Clinicians will appreciate the interaction between mental and physical health and become familiar with the basic assessment and treatment of psychiatric conditions that commonly affect cancer patients. They will also understand crucial referral pathways for when specialist intervention is needed.
The focus of this series is to provide clinicians with a range of skills to provide more effective care to patients and families in difficult circumstances and foster enriching and holistic therapeutic relationships with all patients at all stages of care. Using relevant clinical scenarios and simulated clinical interactions, clinicians will have the opportunity to put new skills into practice so they can feel confident navigating challenging situations in their own practice.
