Earlier this year, an e-learning programme about the role of nutritional care in cancer was launched on Learn Zone. The project team has now developed a series of virtual classrooms that explore aspects of the programme in detail.
Virtual classroom technology means that professionals can ‘attend’ lectures, delivered by experts in the field, online. This not only saves on travel time, but allows participants to ask questions and get a deeper understanding of the topic. It also facilitates peer-assisted learning and the sharing of good practice.
Sessions were delivered through Learn Zone between August and November and topics included cancer rehabilitation, research reports and information and support services.
For those unable to attend a live session, or those wishing to listen again, podcasts are available in the forums section at the Cancer Nursing website and you can still ask questions through the ‘post a reply’ tab. Further sessions may be delivered in 2012 depending on the evaluation results.
