Course summary

The course provides students with an overview of cancer and its impact on people affected by cancer, giving them a foundation on which to develop more specialist knowledge.

 It will enable students to explore their professional contribution to cancer care and critically examine their role, supporting them to assess, plan, deliver and evaluate effective evidence-based cancer care. It aims to equip the learner with evidence-based, ethical and personalised knowledge and skills and is closely aligned to the European Oncology Nursing Societies Education Framework (EONS 2018).
