Mastering patient education
We all know how important patient information is – but in a busy clinic it can be hard to know how effective our education has been.
We developed this scenario-based rapid learning to refresh your delivery of patient information using animations full of simple and practical tips that reflect evidence-based best practice.
The rapid learning features a sneak peek of the new Patient Information website, which will soon feature a range of cancer type specific information... starting with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. We'd love your clinical feedback as we prepare to launch more cancer types. Email: Jennifer.Cater@health.nsw.gov.au

Community-based cancer care for young people: the role of primary care nursing
There is growing recognition that young people aged 15-25 years with cancer have biopsychosocial support needs that are different from those of other age groups.
Our new module, developed by the ONTrac at Peter Mac Victorian Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Service, will help you understand your unique role in supporting young people with cancer into healthy survivorship and beyond.

Facilitator in focus
An increase in urgent immunotherapy treatment-related symptoms has led to the development of a patient alert card and pathway for the Loddon Mallee region of Victoria.
The project was led by Sue Bartlett who worked with four participating health services, an experienced melanoma specialist nurse from Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and a consumer living in the Loddon Mallee to develop a wallet sized patient alert card and patient pathway specific to the Loddon Mallee Region (LMR).
This patient alert card and pathway has been rolled out over four sites including Bendigo Health, Kerang & District Health, Maryborough District Health Services and Swan Hill District Health, who have participated in over 22 education sessions to GP’s and Emergency Department staff.
The project was funded by the Loddon Mallee Integrated Cancer Service.
We’ve made some changes to our online facilitator training to tailor the information to your different information needs. We will now run separate sessions for:
- New facilitators – Introductory webinar focussing on navigating the facilitator toolbox and course resources.
- Previous experience – Q&A style session, tailoring information to participant needs.
- Non-cancer setting – Introductory webinar focussing on navigating the facilitator toolbox and course resources.
Check the facilitator training calendar for up to date details.

It’s free to join and membership gives you free access to the 2019 Aboriginal Cancer Network Forum which will highlight best-practice models of care to improve cancer outcomes for the NSW Aboriginal population.
