Join us on 24th November, when we will be hosting a FREE live, online performance of Homeward Bound – a play based on the true story of Seth and Lesley Goodburn and the 33 short and heart-breaking days from Seth’s diagnosis with pancreatic cancer to his death.
Airing live, via Zoom at 3.00pm, the play is being brought to life by drama students from Inverness College University of the Highland and Islands. As well as helping to raise vital awareness about the signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer, the play highlights the human impact of receiving a late diagnosis of this type can have. After the performance, Lesley Goodburn will be available to discuss and answer audience questions.
Who should attend?
We warmly invite anyone working in a health and social care setting, as well as patients and carers.
Why should I attend?
Originally written as a play in 2016 and developed by the National Council for Palliative Care and Pancreatic Cancer UK to help improve end of life care, it is now widely recognised as a valuable educational resource for health care professionals. It terms of key learning, the story can be broken down into four areas, covering:
- Insight in the signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer
- Understanding of the human impact of receiving a late diagnosis
- Ways to improve communication and encourage better shared decision making between professionals and individuals with life-limiting illness and their families
- Guidance about how to improve the quality and experience of palliative and end of life care for people affected by pancreatic cancer.
