Introduction

Access resources by clicking the Outcomes tab or scroll down to the Scientific Programme.

 

This course is designed for senior surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists and radiologists involved in management of patients with colorectal cancer. In order to make the training effective, it's recommended that the decision-making members from the same institution (surgeon, radiation-oncologist, medical oncologist) attend the meeting together.


The World Health Organization states that “Collaborative practice happens when multiple health workers from different professional backgrounds work together to deliver the highest quality of care. There is sufficient evidence to indicate that effective interprofessional education enables effective collaborative practice and that collaborative practice strengthens health systems and improves health outcomes." To facilitate their growing competence, healthcare professionals must understand facts and ideas within the conceptual framework of multidisciplinary cancer care. This Train-the-trainer course offers a model for collaborative practice, guiding participants on how to structure common patterns of reasoning in a multidisciplinary team. Rather than explore the clinical treatment and management of colorectal cancer, the course will focus on interprofessional communication, which is critical in all phases of collaborative patient care. With the aim of helping participants develop core competencies necessary for effective team work, unconventional activities will be used during the course to bring models of effective interprofessional communication to the forefront. Participants can expect to engage directly with experts, and take part in rigorous interprofessional discussion on all aspects of multidisciplinary cancer care.

Overview

The Train-the-trainer course is a two-day training workshop designed to promote the interprofessional management of colorectal cancers. Participants will have the chance to increase their understanding of the multidisciplinary cancer care model, acquiring competencies and discussing implementation strategies for their own institutions. Healthcare professionals who have attended the training are then encouraged to disseminate what they have learned and to replicate the multidisciplinary cancer care model in their own country. The programme is designed for a specialized audience composed by the three core members of the multidisciplinary team drawn from the same centre (surgeon, radiotherapist and medical oncologist).

Learning objectives

  • Acquire the competence to train multidisciplinary team (MDT) members in the management of colorectal cancer patients
  • Apply new communication modalities to integrate different specialists into the MDT
  • Implement plans for leading and sustaining meaningful education and collaborative practice at their own institution, including the legal, regulatory, cost-effectiveness implications as well as the patients’ perspective
  • Establish a network among different centers with an effective MDT
