Cancer in the Community e-learning

This course is delivered by E-learning for Health

The Royal Marsden School in collaboration with Health Education England South London has designed an e-learning programme to provide an overview of the key issues in cancer care and to raise awareness of them. The programme aims to ensure knowledge for community-based workers related to the key aspects of cancer and its treatment becomes embedded into their daily activities, and aims to inspire them to support clients before, during and after cancer is diagnosed. The four e-learning sessions in this programme cover the following topics:

  • Cancer Prevention and Screening
  • Cancer Diagnosis and Staging
  • Cancer Treatments
  • Living with and Beyond Cancer
