As a Macmillan professional, you are not alone. You are part of a network of people who, like you, work hard to provide a high-quality service to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.
Communities of Practice
At Macmillan, we are keen to support professionals so they can learn from each other. One of the ways we do this is through our Communities of Practice. These groups help professionals with shared expertise and knowledge to meet virtually, in person or both.
For details of current Communities of Practice, please visit the ‘Special interest groups’ section on Learn Zone. If you would like more information about any of them, please contact your local Learning and Development Manager.
Opportunities to meet face-to-face
To help Macmillan colleagues share information and expertise face-to-face, we host national and regional events, conferences and workshops. These are aimed at many different audiences, such as, professionals from a particular region, those who have the same role, or specialists who focus on the same area of cancer care.
In this online group you can start or join discussions about cancer care. You can also connect with other professionals; find links to interesting articles; and receive updates on Macmillan's latest information resources including Mac Voice magazine. The group is also somewhere where you can promote upcoming events or job opportunities, and a place where you can let people know about the services you provide.
Find out more and join the group.
