This 2-hour-workshop will focus on developing an inter-professional approach to distress in patients with cancer.

We will also discuss different strategies for management as well as available hospital based and community resources that can be utilized by the allied health team when involved in the care of patients with cancer. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to reflect on a clinical case and build on skills gained from MP3C Foundational courses and/or Practice Improvement workshops.
