25 page interactive booklet is designed to help remind healthcare professionals (HCP’s) of the benefits effective communication can afford their patients with cancer. With the aid of illustrations it is primarily aimed at non-specialist HCP’s who would benefit from the practical steps offered, that anyone can take when ‘Communicating with people newly diagnosed with cancer.’
At £2.49 inc VAT with 30% of profits going to UK-based cancer charities, I hope you will agree it is good value for money considering it also includes an accompanying slide deck and speaker notes to facilitate discussion or training sessions

The inspiration for my booklet has come from personal experience following a diagnosis of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma over thirty years ago and recently when I was diagnosed with radiation damage to my major arteries resulting from the treatment I received in 1986.
My experiences on both occasions and during my time as an oncology nurse working for the NHS has convinced me that healthcare professionals continue to need help and encouragement to ensure the best support is offered to patients during the particularly demanding period immediately following a cancer related diagnosis.
Since leaving the NHS in 1994, I have continued to work specifically in the field of oncology within the pharmaceutical industry, so I am well aware many advances have been made in cancer management. However, as a member of the public rather than a nurse, I have continued to encounter cancer patients on an all too regular basis as work colleagues, friends and relatives have sadly been diagnosed and fallen victim to many of the shortfalls in the quality of communication I experienced. I hope this booklet will go some way towards reassuring healthcare professionals of the real difference they can make for someone newly diagnosed with cancer.
