Parental cancer can have a significant impact on the whole family, but children are often left out of important conversations.

At this in-person event, attendees will learn the importance of talking to children about their parent’s cancer, what families can do to prepare for the death of a parent, and the role of professionals in supporting families at end of life.

This workshop will focus on our recent research findings from the ‘Family-centred cancer care’ programme led by a team of researchers at the Institute of Nursing and Health Research, Ulster University.

The event is led by Dr Cherith Semple, Reader in Clinical Cancer Nursing and Dr Jeff Hanna, Post-doctoral Researcher, School of Nursing, Ulster University.
