This introductory module is for nurses who provide care to children with a cancer diagnosis, as well as other allied health and medical staff in the field of paediatric oncology. 

The module has been designed to provide you with an increased understanding of what paediatric patients might be experiencing with radiotherapy, and the procedures and indicators for treatment and acute side effects.

Facilitators have reflected positively on the course content, good interaction with peers and the opportunity ADAC provides to standardise competencies and assessment across Australian hospitals.
