Webinar Series

Living alongside cancer in the context of COVID-19

The Psychology Team at University Hospital Bristol and Weston have put together a number of webinars to help maintain wellbeing at this unsettling time.

What are the webinars? The Psychology Team at University Hospital Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBWT) have put together a number of webinars to help maintain psychological wellbeing during this unsettling time, due to Covid-19. The 30 minute webinars will offer a chance to see a presentation about each topic, and some guidance about how to manage with these challenges. Each will have a Q&A session at the end, for attendees to ask questions. 

Who are the webinars aimed at?  These webinars are designed for TYA and adult patients with cancer and their supporters, as well as the parents of children with cancer. This series is aimed at patients, or the supporters/parents of patients who have their oncology care provided by UHBWT.

When are they running?  There are currently no live webinars scheduled but you can find the links to our recordings below.


How do I watch previous webinars which were recorded?  You can also watch the content for our previous series of webinars by using the links below. The password for all of them is Psychology1.  Please note these were designed for Oncology and Haematology patients and families of University Hospitals Bristol and Western.  The recorded content is only of the professionals presentations and will not include the patient Q&A to ensure patient confidentiality.We would encourage you to register to attend our live webinars to get the full experience.
