Webinars and symposiums
Join Dr Louise Walker and the PALPRAC team in an informative webinar as we discuss breaking bad news in Zulu speaking cancer patients.
Breaking bad news (BBN) is a common event in palliative care and communication skills are critical to good practice of the discipline. There is a dearth of guidance for communicating with African language/cultural groups. The qualitative study discussed in this webinar highlighted phrases & techniques in the international BBN literature, adapted them for use with Zulu speaking cancer patients & discussed their appropriateness with this group of patients. An understanding of Zulu speaking cancer patients’ BBN experience was also gained. Valuable insights regarding the perspectives of Zulu speaking cancer patients was gained.
While this study focuses on one specific African language, valuable information regarding BBN in cross-cultural and cross-language situations can be gleaned from it. Findings encourage clinicians to reflect on their patient population & tailor BBN to the specific scenario.
