A wonderful resource giving very practicle advice on the one to one front line nursing people with cancer. Signs of stress and awareness of the holistic psychosocial effects on people. Helpful dialogue to open to discuss and further discuss with other health team members to assist to assist the patient. Very supportive to nursing staff.

Delivery of subject matter was fairly dry. More interaction would have been good.

Everyone should listen and learn from this resource as it is just as important to patients wellbeing as the medical treatment is.

There was a problem with the quality of lecture as it froze in p,aces. Also i found the sections on "test your learning" difficult to follow as the options were in number combinations but i did not find the corresponding explanations, so ended up just guessing what they meant and consequently got them wrong until all options exhausted (unless i was lucky enough to pick the right one first)
