Build strong patient-practitioner relationships

Engage your patients faster without burning out!

Hi!

I'm Dr Mhairi (“Vari”) Morris and I’m a biochemistry lecturer and cancer researcher at a UK university.

I love teaching – I’m a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and I was awarded local Teacher Fellow status at my previous institution.

As much as I love teaching and learning all things cancer-related, one of my biggest frustrations is around clear communication in science education.

I’m not your typical academic, you see, and I’m not afraid to admit that I too get bored when reading some textbooks and journal articles. Sometimes they can be so stuffy!

 

The humbling effect of patient experience

A couple of years ago, I had the pleasure and honor of working with a group of teenage and young adult cancer patients as part of a research project I was involved with to explore ways that personalized 3D printed models of a patient’s tumor could help them come to terms with their diagnosis.

This was an incredibly eye-opening experience for me! As a cancer biologist who is more familiar with a flask full of cancer cells than a room full of young people living with cancer, at that point I really had no idea what the cancer experience, from diagnosis to treatment, looked like.

It was during this time in my life that I began to explore the idea of communicating cancer clearly and I set up a blog to support my teaching practice at the time, which went down a storm with my students!

Since then, I’ve become passionate about explaining complex cancer science in easy-to-understand, accessible language – and so, Essential Cancer Education was born.

Does any of this sound familiar?

Confused?

Have you ever felt confused by the sheer volume of information available on the internet surrounding cancer?

Have you ever wondered, “Where on earth do I start?”

 

Lost?

Have you ever read an article or a book on the subject and thought to yourself, “I don’t want to admit this but…I have no idea what this means?!”

Or perhaps you got to the end of the page and thought, “Nope! None of that actually went in!!”

Frustrated?

Do you ever wish you had more time to get to know your patients better and understand their disease from a whole-person perspective?

Do you ever wonder how you could more effectively encourage and engage your patients in taking control of their own health?

You are NOT alone!

It doesn't have to be this way.

Cut through the online 'noise' and start gaining clarity.

Tame the overwhelm that rises up inside of you when some new piece of the 'puzzle' presents itself and learn to put it in its rightful place.

Crush that lingering feeling of inadequacy and confidently bring your patients on board as they take control of their own health.

Discover how to communicate effectively with your patients to maximise their engagement with their own health goals.

Learn to apply your psychoneuroimmunology to support your patients through their diagnosis and treatment.

 

Throughout all of my research, here’s what I found out...

 

From the patient's perspective:

What the health professional says and what the patient hears are not always the same thing.

Patients don’t want to be patronized – they want an honest and full description of what their diagnosis is and what it means for them, ALL the different treatment options available to them, and what else they can be doing to help themselves.

More and more patients are turning to independent health professionals delivering complementary and alternative therapies, but need reassurance about the safety and effectiveness of any given treatment.

From the health professionals' perspective:

Time and resources are a HUGE issue. How can you work most effectively with each patient when you sometimes only have as little as 10 minutes with them during appointments?

In the “Google Age” in which we currently live, patients are often exposed to poor quality, often false, sometimes even dangerous “advice” and information online, so it’s extremely important that, as health professionals, you can educate and inform them accurately with evidence-based medicine.

We ALL know we OUGHT to get more exercise, eat a healthy balanced diet, drink in moderation and reduce our stress levels, but so often we DON’T. Cancer patients are no exception, yet these positive lifestyle changes are essential in order to live well with cancer, and most importantly, it improves their chances of survival. So how can you promote and support lasting, positive lifestyle changes?

What would it mean to you to help your patients understand what’s going on inside them and the reasons WHY making positive lifestyle changes can help them heal?

The Clarity on Cancer Framework

Designed exclusively for cancer health professionals working in health, wellness and coaching, the Clarity on Cancer framework will help you map out your patient’s treatment options and help them decide on the care plan best suited to their needs and wants.

 

By giving you a thorough grounding in the subject, you will feel more confident in communicating with your patients what on earth is actually going on inside of them, knowing that if they truly understand WHY our lifestyle choices can lead to cancer, they are more likely to engage in the process of making positive lifestyle changes.

ENROLL NOW

The best part is, it doesn’t take a million years or even a PhD in cancer biology to implement. As you work through the modules, you will see how flexible this framework can be across different types of cancer.

In short, you will be able to build YOUR OWN professional framework to help you create individualized patient care plans WITH your patients, bringing them on board with their own health goals.

And you can adapt and re-use it again and again and again…

But don't just take it from me...

Here's what other students have said:

"You are an amazing teacher - I know this from personal experience. Such an inspiration and a real talent for empowering others. You're the reason I'm in cancer research too!"

Alexandra Lock

The way I see it, to provide outstanding patient care you need 3 things:

 

(1) Compassion for the patient

(2) Understanding of their disease, treatment and prognosis

(3) The ability to communicate effectively

 

If you have one or two of these elements, you can be good, possibly even great, but to really EXCEL you need all three.

That’s why I’ve put together this carefully designed program and particular set of bonuses.

Here’s what you’ll get and what you’ll learn:

The Clarity on Cancer digital training package is a 3-step system comprising 6 core modules that will guide you through a step-by-step process to build your own professional framework for patient engagement.

Inside the program, you’ll discover the 3 steps of the Clarity on Cancer framework:

Step 1: Engage

The first step in patient care is engaging patients in their own health goals. The first two modules will help you communicate clearly with your patients and provide insights to help them cope.

Module 1: Effective coaching

Changing habits following a cancer diagnosis requires a patient to undergo a transformational mind shift. I’ll walk you through your role as a coach in this transformation, and show you how to communicate clearly and effectively to bring your patients on board with this change.

Module 2: Engaging with empathy

Being diagnosed with cancer is incredibly stressful. In this module, I’ll help you understand the emotional impact of a diagnosis and show you some insights from the field of psychoneuroimmunology – that is, how our thoughts affect our brains and how this in turn affects our immune system – and how to use them to help your patients cope.

 

Step 2: Equip

The second step will give you tools to equip your patients in decision-making and dealing with their treatment journey.

Module 3: Explaining cancer clearly

Guiding cancer patients through their different treatment options starts with understanding: yours and theirs. In this module, I’ll guide you through the principles of cancer biology to build a solid foundation for your continuing development.

Module 4: Equipping for treatment

Every patient and their cancer is different. To develop the ideal care plan, we must consider all the available options in discussion with the patient to develop a plan that suits their wants and needs. In this module, I’ll walk you through a range of conventional, complementary and alternative therapies to help you and your patients devise their optimal care plan.

 

Step 3: Empower

The final step in the program will help you to empower your patients to make positive, lasting lifestyle changes.

Module 5: Empowering for change

To understand how to prevent cancer, we must first understand its causes. Whilst not every cancer is caused by things we can prevent, in this module, I’ll take you through the main classes of factors that can cause cancer, so you can begin to build a picture for your clients of ways they can help prevent secondary disease.

Module 6: Envisioning YOUR professional framework

Engaging patients in lifestyle changes requires structure and a clear vision. I’ll help you build a professional framework for patient engagement to support your success in coaching patients through their darkest days.

  2. You’ll then be invited to “take the tour” round the online “school” so you know where to find everything you’ll ever need to successfully complete the course
    3. I’d then recommend watching the introductory video and downloading the program workbook called, “The Ultimate Blueprint for Patient Engagement” – you can also download the audio content to iTunes if you’d prefer to listen on-the-go
  3. Finally, I’d highly recommend setting dates in your calendar to schedule when you’re going to complete the training and associated workbook exercises each week for the next 6 weeks. Of course, there’s no rush to get through it all during the live portion of the training, but in my experience if it doesn’t get scheduled in the diary ahead of time, it doesn’t get done! And I KNOW you’ll want to get it done ;-)

Frequently Asked Questions

The Standard Package is available for a one-time payment of $997 or 12 monthly payments of $97.

The Premium Package is available for a one-time payment of $1497 or 12 monthly payments of $137.

The course contains approximately 7-8 hours of video content, and I’d recommend allocating an additional 6 hours to work through the materials and workbooks in your own time. Of course, there may be aspects you’re more interested in than others, and so you may find yourself spending more time researching into these areas.

You have lifetime access to the course materials so even though it’s designed to be a 6-weekcourse, you can go back and cover any of the materials in your own time.

The weekly live Q&As will last approximately an hour. These will still benefit you even if you aren’t on ‘the same page’ as other students – there’s no such thing as ‘fallen behind’ – you’re learning at a pace that suits you. They are also recorded and uploaded to your course library for those who are unable to attend live for any reason, so you can revisit them at any time.

This course is designed for health professionals who work with cancer patients, not for patients themselves. Patients are welcome to browse the website and blog posts for information they might find useful, but I'd also recommend some excellent online resources designed for patients, for example, www.cancerresearchuk.orgwww.cancer.gov.

It is exclusively designed for professionals in the health, wellness and coaching industries, including (but not limited to) allied health & wellness professionals, health, wellness and life coaches, integrative & functional medicine practitioners wishing to specialize in cancer, occupational therapists, nutritional therapists, psychotherapists, counsellors, oncology nurses, physiotherapists, and survivorship team members.

If you’re still in the throes of establishing your coaching practice, now is an ideal time to train because you’ll have embedded the learning by the time you book your first client. There is a module on effective coaching and another on explaining cancer clearly that will serve you well in this area.

There is no rush to get through all the material in 6 weeks – you have lifetime access.

This is nothing like school! You don’t have to do the ‘homework’ (although you’ll get more out of the course if you do).

There is a mix of different learning resources so you can choose what suits you best – video, audio, additional reading.

It’s completely self-paced too, so you can easily keep up – no frantic note-taking during lectures!

This is 100% online – no travel involved.

You can go through the materials at any time, the only thing that adheres to a schedule is the weekly Q&As, but don’t worry if you miss them – they’re all recorded so you can watch them back in your own time.

All the content is grounded in sound scientific evidence. I’m very clear about the difference between anecdotal and scientific evidence that has been rigorously tested!

It covers a broad curriculum with the ability to drill down and go deeper in the areas you are particularly interested in.

I hold a PhD in tumor virology from the University of Birmingham, UK, and have been doing research into cancer metastasis for nearly 15 years, having studied biochemistry for nearly two decades!

I’m a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy – a UK organization that recognizes excellence in teaching – and I hold a Teacher Fellowship award from my previous institution.

I am currently a Lecturer at Loughborough University in the UK, actively publishing in the field of molecular cancer research, so I have my ‘finger on the pulse’

The course content is grounded in evidence-based medicine and thorough research.

We are currently looking into accrediting the course with CPDUK and the ICF, but at present the course is not accredited. For more information, please contact [email protected]
