Coronavirus (COVID-19) – In light of the evolving situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, all face-to-face teaching at The Royal Marsden School is suspended and we are not accepting any new applications. We will be reviewing the situation regularly and should it become feasible to resume activity will do so.
The safety of those attending our courses and our patients is our primary concern and we are following all current Public Health England guidelines. Read here.
The School will be communicating directly with their staff and students to outline their plans for the delivery of each of their programmes/modules. For now, please see our Student Q&A for more information.

The module will examine current research into the effectiveness of treatment and care of patients undergoing SACT including the pathophysiology of various approaches. It will explore the legal, ethical, quality and safety issues inherent in their use. Students will develop the skills to identify and manage the common side effects of different systemic anti-cancer therapies and the impact of treatment on patient’s physical, psychological and psychosocial wellbeing.
All theory will be linked to the outcomes from the UKONS SACT competency passport.
