Bloodwise offers education and networking opportunities to share best practice in all aspects of blood cancer for healthcare professionals working in haemato-oncology.
This year’s programme
An interactive one-day training day on Friday 7 February 2019 aimed at healthcare professionals working in haemato-oncology wishing to improve vital communication skills with colleagues within the multi-disciplinary team as well as blood cancer patients and their support network.

- Practice skills to improve the quality of clinical communication around treatment decisions, particularly palliative and end of life care and psychological wellbeing
- Increase confidence in managing difficult conversations with patients and carers
- Build on influencing and assertiveness skills to enhance communication between colleagues and teams, such as discussing stopping treatment/death and dying, challenging colleagues and advocating for patients in a multidisciplinary team.
- Practice and incorporate self-care techniques to care for yourself and blood cancer patients
There will be opportunity for healthcare professionals to:
- Gain insight from expert speakers
- Share their own experiences and expertise with peers
