The Antineoplastic Drug Administration Course (ADAC) supports health professionals to develop the necessary knowledge and clinical skills to administer antineoplastic drugs and handle related waste safely.


About

ADAC provides standardised education for the safe administration of antineoplastic drugs and handling of related waste.

The course consists of online learning and assessment supported by a clinical skill workshop to consolidate theory to practice. Competency assessments are used to assess clinical skill. There are three exit points in the courses for those participants only requiring education to a certain skills level.
