eviQ Education is a program of the Cancer Institute NSW which provides medical, nursing, allied health and general ward staff with online learning resources. All resources aim to standardise and promote evidence based best practice when caring for patients with a cancer diagnosis.

Many education resources have been developed by the Cancer Institute NSW to meet its objectives however other resources have been developed by our external partners and hosted by us. Please visit the homepage of each resource for more information.

All resources are designed to be implemented locally and can be incorporated into a Health Care Facility's Learning and Development Framework. All education resources attract continuing professional development (CPD) hours which can be documented to meet the CPD requirements as outlined in each disciplines Registration Standards.

The team works with health professionals from Australia and New Zealand to develop and review content ensuring all resources are applicable and support the different models of care.

Content development complies with a strict governance process and all materials used are evidence based and peer reviewed. All resources developed by eviQ Education support cancer education initiatives including eviQ Cancer Treatments Online, EdCaN and Cancer Learning.
