This program is for nurses who work with older people affected by cancer. It uses evidence based and best practice guidelines to improve the knowledge and skills in caring for older people with cancer.
This is the first online educational resource specific to the Australian context that supports nurses to deliver excellent care to older people with cancer. This course presents information about the implications for care of an older person with cancer with particular focus on communication.
These Geriatric Oncology Nursing Education Modules have been developed in collaboration between Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, The Royal Melbourne Hospital Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Western & Central Integrated Cancer Service (WCMICS), Western Health (Melbourne) Consumer representatives, The Royal Women’s Hospital (Melbourne) The University of Melbourne.
This project has been funded by WCMICS and is generously supported by The Frances & Harold Abbott Foundation.
