Course summary

Do you work with patients undergoing cancer treatment? This module will provide nurses or allied health professionals with the knowledge and skills to confidently care for the acute oncology patient. This module will enable students to gain an understanding of how cancer and its treatment can lead to the acute deterioration of the patient. The module utilises a variety to enhance and develop students’ existing knowledge to assess, prevent, and manage the rapidly changing or emergency situation.

I’m more confident when I’m looking after patients because now I understand how cancer and its treatment can lead to the patient becoming acutely ill. The module team were very supportive and always there for advice.
