We are Macmillan. Cancer Support
Macmillan professionals and staff came together to celebrate the winners of the inaugural Macmillan Professionals Awards| in November.
The awards showcased the innovative and high-quality work that Macmillan professionals are known for. Work such as the development of physical activity partnerships by Lorraine Barton, Lead Cancer Nurse. Or the introduction of a holistic needs assessment and personalised care plan for people with colorectal cancer by Macmillan Colorectal Cancer Nurse Specialist Jane Winter.
This edition of Sharing good practice| includes two perspectives on holistic needs assessment and care planning, with details from one of the National Cancer Survivorship Initiative pilot sites.
Evidence suggests that having a holistic needs assessment during and at the end of treatment helps to identify the issues that need to be discussed with a healthcare professional. These can then be used to develop a care plan in partnership with the person affected by cancer. The supplement offers practical advice for those wanting to develop or improve their assessment and care planning processes.
Finally, we would like to hear about what impact Mac Voice has on your work. Please take a few minutes to fill out the short survey|.
