Advanced Communications Skills Retreat

October 5 @ 7:00 pm - October 9 @ 4:00 am

$2450 – $3850

For all health professionals who work with cancer patients

Designed specifically to enhance core communication skills for clinical scenarios, this retreat covers topics such as delivering bad news and discussing end- of-life care.

Conducted by Cancer Council Victoria in partnership with Deakin University the fourth iteration of this program will be held at the Yarra Valley Lodge, Melbourne on October 5-8, 2021.

Through small group activities, facilitated by expert clinicians, participants address communication challenges from their own clinical practice with simulated patients. This retreat provides a safe environment, guided by expert cancer clinicians, to really work on the difficult conversations and come away with enhanced skills.

“This was a powerful 3 days where I realised small changes in how we communicate can have dramatic differences in how the communication can impact on our patients.”

If you spend a significant portion of your time working with cancer patients, then you will benefit from this retreat. For further information visit www.cancervic.org.au/skills-retreat
