Monday Lunch Livestream

with Alexandra Rivalland and Laura Brunt

Monday 15 August


Carers play an integral role in patient outcomes so how can we support them to ensure optimal care?

Hear Alexandra Rivalland and Laura Brunt discuss how focusing on the needs of carers of patients with a haematological malignancy can bring benefits on multiple levels.

As contemporary models of care place increasing emphasis on outpatient-led treatment, it's important to examine the needs of caregivers as an essential pillar in service provision.

Equipping and enabling carers to provide the care commonly led by tertiary hospitals in the inpatient setting, supports efficiency and sustainability for services, as well as improved outcomes for patients.

This event focuses specifically on the needs of carers of patients with a haematological malignancy post discharge with an integrative review of the current international literature.

Supporting carers optimises patient outcomes, improves quality of life and ensures holistic patient and family centred care.
