EAUNwebinar: “Shared decision-making in prostate cancer: What’s new?”  e-course

This webinar is available for EAUN Members as an accredited e-course on the Educational Platform. Register here:

Shared decision-making is nowadays a norm in cancer patients’ care. The involvement of patients in treatment decisions enhances a patient’s satisfaction and can avoid regrets after treatment.

The term “shared decision-making” is common and we need to remind ourselves of what it means. The patient is the one who will make the final treatment decision but the question is: how well or badly informed are patients? As caregivers, do we communicate appropriately to allow patients to make a decision?

Generic information about possible side-effects of prostate cancer treatments are not accepted anymore by patients. They want to receive individualised information to be able to make a choice of treatment. More and more personalised risks tools have been developed and are being used in daily practice. This webinar will help nurses to rethink shared decision-making in prostate cancer.

Moderator
Mr. Maarten Van Elst, Nurse Practitioner, Utrecht (NL)

Presenter(s)
Dr. Ellen Engelhardt, post doc Researcher (NL)
Ms. Corinne Tillier, Nurse Practitioner Uro-oncology (NL)
Mr. John Dowling, Europa UOMO (IE)

  • To better understand how to use individualised risk assessment tools in treatment of prostate cancer
  • To be more aware of the perspective of the patient in shared decision-making

Duration: Approx. 75  minutes

Webinars organised by other organisations

In addition to webinars organised by the EAUN in cooperation with the ESU and EAU, we will also provide links to webinars organised by other societies on this page, especially if we have contributed to the webinar or it is of particular interest to nurses working in this field.

ESO Prostate Cancer App e-Session

The European Oncology Nursing Society has developed an App for nurses working with prostate cancer patients. The App was primarily designed as a virtual coach for those involved in the delivery of care of patients diagnosed with prostate cancer. EONS’ first mobile application aims to assist cancer nurses in assessing and addressing the needs of patients diagnosed with prostate cancer according to the latest evidence-based assessment tools and management interventions. Emphasis is particularly placed on assessing and addressing the needs more frequently reported by patients which have been left unmet during their care. In this e-Session, the content and usefulness of this App is discussed.

The development was a joined effort in which the EAUN was happy to be involved.
