This event is tailored to Iraqi Oncologists who work under patients' overload circumstances & is organized by Roche pharmaceuticals.

The real struggle of a woman with cancer (it’s not about just a medical sickness)
- Her multiple life ramifications & psychological toll
- The quality of the oncologist's communication has high impact on her outcomes
- The dilemma of breaking the bad news
- Effective communication basics (a patient-centered approach)
- What you say has high impact (the placebo & the nocebo effects):
◦Your words can cure or be swords that kill
