Example cancer singnificant event analyses with thematic analysisPublished: 22nd December 2016
These fictional example cancer singnificant event analyses (SEAs) demonstrate a varying range of quality. Each contains detailed notes showing both positive and negative examples of reflection, subsequent actions, and impacts following a cancer diagnosis.
The three examples are centred around colorectal and ovarian carcinoma, two cancers known to present as an emergency.
Cancer SEA Patient A
An example where reflection could have been deeper.
Cancer SEA Patient B
An example describing a clear timeline of events, however it could demonstrate deeper reflection, more specific learning action points, and the impact on practice.
Cancer SEA Patient C
An example which is thorough in its discussions and demonstrates insightful reflections, specific learning and action points.
These fictional examples can be used to demonstrate best practice in cancer SEAs, and where improvements can be advised to GPs.
