Course summary

This module will guide students to critically explore cancer as a long-term condition, assess its impact on an individual and those significant to them, and to explore and analyse effective ways to support them.

The focus of this module is the exploration of those factors influencing the management of people living with cancer, both personal and organisational, drawing on the experience of people living with other life-limiting long term conditions. This module will provide the opportunity to explore the impact of living with cancer on the individual and to develop strategies to facilitate active participation in their own health care needs.

Interesting and thought provoking course. Different lecture styles compared to other modules at other universities.
