The ABCs of Breaking Bad News

The ABCs of Breaking Bad News


This May, in our Free SME Webinar, we are going to discuss how to have difficult conversations with patients. We will cover how to break bad news to patients, as well as providing the opportunity for attendees to participate in discussions of real-life clinical scenarios where they can experience the realities of being a doctor.

Our guest speaker will be addressing:

  • Decision making – discussing treatment options
  • Breaking the News – multidisciplinary approach
  • Empathy – using your emotions to comfort patients
  • Structure – knowing where to take the conversation
  • Disclosure – ensuring the patient has understood
  • Case studies – examining real-life clinical scenarios
  • Personal advice – tips for future Doctors

The symposium will end with an Open Q&A with our presenter!
