Event description

Description

The TrueNTH Supported Self-Management and Follow-Up Care Project has developed a four-hour supported self-management workshop to support men with prostate cancer to transition from clinic-based follow-up to a supported self-management follow-up pathway. These workshops are run with 8 - 12 men and are facilitated by a Clinical Nurse Specialist and an AfC band 4 Support Worker. To date over 200 workshops have been delivered across five NHS Trusts in England - feedback from men and clinical teams has been extremely positive. One key factor in the successful delivery of these workshops is the strong facilitation skills of the nursing staff who deliver the workshops.

Based on extensive learning from the project we have developed this training session to support Clinical Nurse Specialists and Support Workers develop their group facilitation skills. Topics covered in this session include:

- Establishing groups

- Using directive and non-directive facilitation styles

- Using questions effectively

- Reflections and paraphrasing

- Promoting self-management, problem solving and goal setting

- Managing challenging scenarios (e.g. negativity, group disagreements)

- Closing groups

This session will use blended learning methods including short presentations, video clips, group work and group discussion.
