SAGE and THYME features in Oxford University Press Textbook

2 March 2017

Oxford University Press have recently published the second edition of the 'Oxford Textbook of Communication in Oncology and Palliative Care', which contains a whole chapter on the SAGE & THYME model, written by Michael Connolly (the lead developer of the SAGE & THYME training).

The chapter covers:

  • the background to the development of the SAGE & THYME model
  • foundation level communication skills and how they are taught in cancer nursing
  • a description of the model and the workshop and the evidence and justification behind each element
  • the evidence on the impact of the workshop on communication knowledge and skills
  • and how the SAGE & THYME foundation level workshop can be adopted by other organisations.
