‘Your Bowel Health’ workshops
‘Your Bowel Health’ is our newest form of bowel cancer awareness session. It is an interactive and practical approach that aims to empower people to feel more confident in their knowledge of bowel cancer symptoms, risk and screening. Questions are encouraged throughout the workshop.
Sessions are longer than our standard awareness talks and can run from one to two hours, depending on the size of the group and the potential use of interpreters. This allows for greater participation and discussion.
‘Your Bowel Health’ explores the existing understanding of cancer from people from different backgrounds or community groups. The aim is for participants to understand that their contribution is valuable and useful, and people can learn from one other. The workshop is led by our friendly, highly experienced staff and volunteers, and explains the facts about bowel cancer. They will then lead open discussions about various topics, including symptoms and how people can reduce their risk of developing the disease. The group will then be encouraged to think about small, manageable changes they could make in their daily lives.
The session is fully interactive. Various practical and talking exercises are used to help keep the experience interesting and enjoyable. We believe that by giving people space to openly discuss their own ideas, they will be more likely to take suggestions on board.
These talks sometimes use translators in order to communicate effectively with everyone in the group, allowing for greater understanding and involvement. We are unable to provide translators so this needs to be organised by the host.
