Introducing: Rapid Learning…in the time it takes to drink a cup of tea!

Rapid learning delivers small bursts of learning in about the time it takes to drink a cup of tea.

It’s quick, effective ‘just-in-time’ training and much like a cuppa, it’s easy to consume and fit into the busy day of a health professional.

The design is small and specific and will suit any device. We can develop the learning quickly to respond to changes in practice, new evidence, procedures, drugs and deliver new data and trends to arm you with the most up-to-date information quickly.

... meet Evie

Evie is the reason we are developing our rapid learning series. She is time poor and struggles to stay up to date with the best evidence-based learning to care for her cancer patients. She completes her professional development reluctantly - after hours and at home! 

We’ve analysed our data and there were too many Evies for our liking. So, we designed the rapid learning series to take no more than the time it takes to drink a cup of tea, and for the device closest to you when you do. We know you work hard for your tea break, now let your tea break work for you!

Pilot centres needed: Immunotherapies 

We are looking for three sites to pilot:

  • An immunotherapies pre-administration patient assessment tool

These resources have been approved by our clinical advisory committee, and are ready for clinical testing.

To express your interest, please seek the necessary approvals from your management teams and contact Lisa.McLean@cancerinstitute.org.au

New case study: Radiation Oncology – colorectal cancer 

 

In this new case study we meet Mrs Ali, a Lebanese mother of four who is diagnosed with colorectal cancer. We follow her journey as she undergoes radiation therapy simulation, planning, treatment, side effects and follow up – and touch upon the cultural considerations along the way.
