Marking 10 years of collaboration with Macmillan Cancer Support professionals

25 Jun 2018

To mark 10 years of collaboration between Macmillan Cancer Support professionals and SAGE & THYME, an article has been published in Macmillan's summer edition of its 'Mac Voice' magazine.

The article, written by Mike Connolly (Lead Trainer of SAGE & THYME and Consultant Nurse in Supportive and Palliative Care at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust), talks about how Macmillan was an early adopter of the SAGE & THYME Foundation Level workshop and that to date it has supported more than 230 professionals to become SAGE & THYME facilitators.

Genevieve Murphy, Macmillan Senior Learning & Development Manager in Belfast, says, ‘For Macmillan professionals, SAGE & THYME gives them a model they can use in clinical practice, that of listening and responding to concerned patients, putting the patient at the centre of the process and demonstrating a patientcentred approach to communicating and supporting people through the concerns that are important to them.’
