Cancer is becoming a long term condition, with practice prevalence’s rapidly catching up with diabetes. For this reason there is an increasing trend for some of the long term consequences of cancer to be picked up by the nursing workforce where possible. This course is aimed at giving practice nurses the confidence, communication and signposting skills to undertake this work. It is free but does involve three days out of the practice during the six months course. It receives good feedback and is well received with most nurses updating the practice cancer structure, having completed the course. View Flyer for more information.
