Course summary

This double module provides an overview of cancer and its impact on individuals, in order to equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge necessary to feel both confident and competent in dealing with people affected by cancer (Great Britain, Department of Health 2007). The module also enables the student to explore their professional contribution to cancer care and critically examine their role in working collaboratively with the patient, family and multi-professional team to assess, plan, deliver and evaluate effective evidence-based cancer care. The module provides the student with the foundations upon which specialised cancer knowledge can be built.

This is a blended learning module and some content is delivered online. E-learning materials are released on specified dates and students are expected to log in and participate in the activities during that week. Students do not need to log in at a specific date/time.
