This online module has developed from the experiences of faculty teaching oncology communication skills programs, and is very experiential. These are very well presented and useful materials.
There is a set of annotated resources at the end, and new modules will be added on specific topics in the future. The whole program can also be dowloaded as a single PDF document.
