Supporting health professionals
As well as supporting people affected by blood cancer, we helped nurses make sure they could give their patients the best possible care.
Last year saw the biggest ever attendance at our annual professional conference, which included sessions on accessing palliative care and on emotional and psychological support. We had great feedback, with 95% of delegates saying they would use the techniques they had learned and 92% feeling better able to handle difficult conversations.
We also saw a 64% rise in users of our Introduction to Haemato-oncology Nursing Care e-learning module, which some haematology wards now use as part of their induction for staff.
