Even in 2012, many people with cancer will not meet a specialist cancer nurse. However, most of those who visit a hospital for treatment will encounter a student nurse and a junior staff nurse.
With this in mind, a group of interested cancer care professionals got together to consider how to better prepare undergraduate nursing students to deliver care to people with cancer.
The student mentor was responsible for agreeing the students’ learning programme, coordinating the spoke placements, supporting the students through structured reflection, and undertaking formal assessment partnership with the university.
In each spoke, a healthcare professional was identified as the students’ support person. Focused educational visits were also arranged at some spokes with non-nursing professionals.
