Lisa is 31yrs of age. She is working and living in Australia after meeting her Australian partner in Canada five years ago. She is close to her family who live in rural Canada and hasn’t seen them since arriving in Australia 3 years ago. She is planning her first trip home at Christmas. Her relationship with her partner is going well and they have discussed future plans about starting a family. She enjoys her job working in a major finance company and has made friends locally.

After noticing some vague abdominal symptoms including bloating, feeling some tugging and minor abdominal discomfort and putting on weight, she visits her GP. On examination the GP feels some sort of mass on her ovary and organizes a scan. Lisa gets a call from the GP to come in for an appointment to discuss the results. The GP suggests she bring her partner with her.

What might be going through Lisa’s mind? What emotions might she be feeling when she attends the clinic?

Part 2

You are the registered nurse working at the GP clinic and the GP speaks with you about the appointment with Lisa. The GP tells you that the outcome is not good. The scan found a tumour on Lisa’s ovary and there are concerns that this has spread widely. Lisa will be referred to an oncologist and surgeon.

The GP has asked you to attend the appointment so that you can spend time with Lisa after the appointment to explain to her the next steps in her care, clarify Lisa’s understanding, answer questions and prepare her for a difficult road ahead. The GP has requested that you make the appointments for Lisa while she is with you so that there is no delay in starting treatment.

What emotions do you anticipate Lisa might be feeling now and how could this impact on the ability for Lisa to comprehend the information you are about to discuss with her?

How are you feeling about being the person engaging in this discussion with Lisa?
