Communicating about Cancer   

Staff training on how to communicate about cancer


Coming into regular contact with customers and colleagues with a diagnosis of cancer is a common occurrence for many private, public and third sector organisations. Our experience has shown that many staff feel ill-equipped to have conversations about cancer. 

Suitable for all levels of employee,' Communicating about Cancer' training is delivered by Cancer Support UK during a half day session, at your place of work. The training covers subjects such as:

  • Basic cancer awareness
  • Side effects of cancer and cancer treatments
  • Physical and emotional side effects of cancer
  • Confidence in talking to people living with cancer
  • What’s helpful to say and what’s not so helpful
  • Looking after your own emotional wellbeing
Cancer Support UK trainers have extensive experience of delivering cancer information and awareness to a wide range of audiences.
