Hypofractionated radiation therapy
You’ve probably heard the term, but what exactly is hypofractionation? This rapid learning will simplify the science and give you a good understanding of what the term means and which cancers can benefit from this type of radiation therapy.
Learn about the benefits of hypofractionation for patients and the health care system.

An individual is considered a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis, through the balance of his or her life.
Our newest rapid learning will give you insight into the complexities of being a cancer survivor, and how to best support the health and wellbeing of a person living with and beyond cancer.
By the end of the module you will be able to:
- define the term cancer survivor
- identify your role in supporting cancer survivors and referring survivors to key resources
- describe the importance of healthy lifestyle behaviours in improving quality of life
- outline the importance of survivorship care plans and engaging primary care in survivorship care.
Learn how you could make a difference.

An optional prerequisite to ADAC
Oncology basics is the new course we’ve developed to reduce the content overlap throughout ADAC and other eviQ Education courses. It’s for those new to the area of cancer, who may not necessarily be administering antineoplastic drugs. The course represents the new direction for our team in simplifying our content, and we have to say, we’re quite proud of it.
The three-part course will act as an optional prerequisite to ADAC. It’s for learners who are new to the field of oncology and require some extra training and information to get them up to speed before they begin ADAC.

So much happening on the ADAC front - we had to create a new webpage! Take a look at our new one-stop-shop for ADAC version 4, complete with progress updates for each stream, and a little video hello from the team - from our home offices to yours! We want to assure you we’re still here working away and making some terrific progress towards delivering the new version. We’re hoping you’ll consider contributing too.

How do you do it?
We want to understand the way people across health are interacting with Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapies. Why? So we can design stream-specific content relevant to their roles.
We’d love your input to this quick user survey and it would be great if you could help circulate it to your colleagues in community nursing, cancer pharmacy and non-cancer settings by sharing this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/adac4.
