Many individuals with cancer bring pre-existing mental health concerns to their cancer treatment. Working with cancer patients who have pre-existing mental health concerns can be complex. It's important for clinicans to understand the bio-psycho-social issues that patients bring with them to their cancer treatment, and how to approach them in an effective manner.

During this session, you will gain insights from a panel of experts on the following topics:

  • Working with complexity. Using some case studies to further understand and illustrate the issues surrounding mental health concerns within a cancer setting with a particular focus on the challenges of doing this in a rural setting

  • How to provide services in a compassionate and effective way when we have limited resources

  • Making the best use of resources in rural settings. Understanding the unique issues that rural services and people form a rural area face

  • How to effectively manage boundaries in the clinical setting

  • How to communicate in a way that leads to improved outcomes

  • There will also be opportunities for interactive discussion.
