RE:ADAC Workshop/Training for Outpatient Setting
In Darwin, we started the two cancer care workshops.
One is a two days introductory course (run by the ward) which will give candidates and graduate nurses who works in our inpatient Oncology/Hematology ward an idea about the basic cares for cancer patients and central line cares. It is open to all the staff who works in the hospital.
The second one is a five day workshop(run by Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre, Outpatient setting) which is more intense and which is only for candidates who are interested in doing Chemotherapy administration. In this workshop, we cover all the treatment modalities and focus on chemotherapy. Three days of theory includes Medical Oncologists, Hematologists, Radiation Oncologists, Palliative care team, and surgical team talks about the treatment modalities. There is Allied Health team, Cancer Council and Leukemia Foundation talks about their role as well. Two days of Simlab sessions where staff get to practice on PICC's, PORT's, Spills and administering chemotherapy also familiarizing the lines. The maximum number of people is eight and minimum is six. After, the participants get three weeks of placement in AWCCC for Practical which is an agreement we have with the all the Managers. Attending two day workshop is one of the prerequisites for the five day workshop.
Hope this is helpful. Feel free to contact if needed.
