TRUSTING Workshop 22 -23 April 2020

This workshop is taking place at Ockenden Manor, Cuckfield, West Sussex.

There are calls to offer genetic testing to all patients with breast cancer. Many cancer clinicians and nurses are not experienced in genetic testing and many genetic counsellors are not experienced in oncology. All HCPs nevertheless may be faced with challenging communication about genetic risk with patients and their relatives. The TRUSTING educational programme aims to help all HCPs with these difficult conversations. The content of the workshops was developed following literature reviews, interviews with patients and families, geneticists, genetic counsellors, surgeons and oncologists. Participants will follow the on-screen interactions between different HCPs and a fictitious family.
