Course content

The shift in emphasis to outcomes in government policy, including quality of life, survivorship and reducing inequality, further emphasises the need for continued, advanced education and training to develop a workforce to deliver flexible and effective services, and to continue to develop the evidence base for practice. This course is aimed at those involved in providing cancer services, or whose role involves supporting patients with cancer, across health, social care and the third sectors. Students are likely to include professionals in NHS Trusts, Networks, commissioning groups, social care, independent services and third sector groups.

The course will examine issues in relation to cancer awareness and early detection, cancer service-user experience, service development and leadership, end of life care, communication, research and professional development. All students will study five core and compulsory modules, and one of two dissertation options, plus one or two option modules - this will depend on the dissertation module you choose. Students should discuss their plans with their personal tutor.
