COMMUNICATING DIFFICULT NEWS ABOUT HEALTH OF A CHILD OR ADOLESCENT OVER THE PHONE

The pandemic has necessitated immediate changes in how healthcare is delivered. Our colleagues from paediatric oncology are now faced with giving test results such as diagnosis/relapse or changes to treatment on the phone rather than in person. Again, parents are then faced with conveying this life-changing information to their children at home, without the direct support of the oncology team so an accompanying guide to help them with this unenviable task has also been developed.
