If you have lymphoma, you are likely to have to communicate with many different healthcare professionals around your symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, ongoing management, and lifestyle. This can involve many different people, from your GP or A&E staff, to nurses, consultants, and a range of other health professionals along each stage of your experience of lymphoma.
This video was filmed during a live webinar on 15 December 2022. The webinar covered having the confidence to actively participate in conversations and decisions around your healthcare, and hearing the experiences of peers (people with lived experience of lymphoma) and healthcare professionals around communication strategies.
Watch our webinar where the expert speaker panel was Dr Wendy Osborne, Consultant Haematologist, Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, who was joined by Mike and Lesley, two individuals with lymphoma.
