London Cancer network recommends SAGE & THYME foundation level

31 August 2016

London Cancer, the Integrated Cancer System for North East and Central London and West Essex, promotes comprehensive and seamless cancer care for patients in its area.

This includes running a level 2 psychological skills training course for healthcare professionals caring for cancer patients.  The prerequisite for attending this course is that professionals have attended a SAGE & THYME foundation level workshop (which covers level 1 psychological support).

Dr Mark Barrington, Chair, Psychosocial Expert Reference Group for London Cancer said, “SAGE & THYME is a deceptively simple method for managing complex interactions with patients.  It helps professionals to show both that they care and that they value a collaborative approach to problem solving”.
