Cancer Support

This short course is great CPD for those working in health and social care, but is also suitable for those who care for someone living with cancer.

One in two people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. For  many individuals, diagnosis can be a daunting and overwhelming time.  Being able to access the right levels of care and services provides  valuable support when people need it most. As cancer treatments are  improved and more people survive cancer, an awareness of the impact of  living with cancer long-term and knowledge of how to support individuals  is vital for anyone caring for someone with cancer.
