Applications open for the Cancer in the Community Training Programme from Community Nurses across London
29 December 2022: Applications open for the Cancer in the Community Training Programme from Community Nurses across London
Following a successful roll-out of the training programme in 2022, we are pleased to offer another chance for new London-wide registered community nurses and general practice nurses to apply and express an interest to participate in this further cohort. You will be applying to take part in a four-day blended learning Cancer in the Community Training Programme, delivered by CLCH Academy in March 2023 and sponsored by HEE. (Day 4 will be held in person at CLCH Academy, Soho and training Days 1 to 3 will be held virtually with our expert facilitators and speakers).
Training Dates: March 2023 1st, 2nd, 8th & 22nd and April - May 2023: 19th, 20th, 26th April & 10th May (30 spaces available for each training cohort)
To register your interest please complete the Expression of Interest Form by Friday 13 January 2023. (All applicants will be notified if they have secured a space on March cohort by end January 2023).
The 4-day programme is blended learning and will cover key topics (see programme for details):
• Screening and early diagnosis
• Treatment toxicity and acute oncological emergencies
• Living beyond cancer and personalised care (including case scenarios)
The course content is carefully tailored to meet the needs of community and primary care nurses who we recognise will be seeing this group of patients for many different reasons and at different stages in their cancer journey. Nurses in the pilot came away feeling more confident in recognising the needs of, and better able to support this group of patients.
The programme has been well evaluated by attendees with demonstrable increased confidence and competence to care for people living with cancer. A previous attendee said, “This is an excellent course, all community nurses should be given a chance to attend. It’s so informative and the lived experiences were so helpful. Very grateful to have been given the chance to attend the course. Will recommend to others.”
