NEW! Rapid Learn + Listen package

Malignant Pleural Effusion (MPE)


Could shortness of breath in your patient be a sign of Malignant Pleural Effusion (MPE)? MPE is a complication of advanced cancer and affects up to 15% of all cancer patients. Identifying and managing malignant pleural effusion is key to maintaining quality of life for people with cancer. 

Our rapid learning package includes a 5-minute mini-module to help you: 

  • recognise the signs and symptoms of malignant pleural effusion
  • assess the severity 
  • ​​initiate the right interventions and escalate care appropriately.

“I personally think that the patient would have had a rough night if we didn’t escalate the situation quick enough for the appropriate medical interventions to happen”.  Jaypee Valenzuela, Senior nurse.

In this Rapid Listening edition we hear from Renate Jolly, clinical nurse consultant, and senior nurse Jaypee Valenzuela who each share a unique clinical case study of caring for a patient with malignant pleural effusion.
