Diagnosis and support of patients with cancer for general practitioners (GPs).

A range of scenarios showing good and bad experiences of patients when they present to their GP and how, on reflection, their experience could have been improved. It aims to build on, and ensure consistency in, existing communications skills of primary care professionals.

The Toolkit consists of:

  • Case studies presenting typical GP consultations, relating to four cancer areas
  • The patient's voice video clips of around 10 minutes each
