Communities of Practice support professionals with shared expertise and knowledge to learn from each other through meeting in person, virtually or both. Visit the ‘Special interest groups’ section on Learn Zone for details of current groups. Contact your local Learning and Development manager for more information.
Opportunities to meet face-to-faceBack to top
Our regional and national events are a good opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise face-to-face. We run conferences, workshops and events for professionals who share a role in common, are from the same region or focus on the same area of cancer care.
Macmillan Alumni programmeBack to top
We’ve launched a new Alumni programme exclusively for former Macmillan professionals, to help you to stay in touch with us, and each other – and we’d love you to come to our first event.
Macmillan professionals often tell us how proud they are of the work they’ve done with Macmillan, and how they’d like to stay in touch after their role ends or they retire. Now there’s an easy way to do just that: the new Macmillan Alumni programme.
Whether you’ve moved on to a different role or retired, the Macmillan Alumni is a great opportunity to network with other cancer and palliative care professionals from across the UK and to share your knowledge and experience.
At the same time, it allows you to stay in touch and maintain your relationship with Macmillan. Your work has been a huge part of how we’ve helped people affected by cancer over the years. By keeping in touch now, you can continue to impact our work in the future.
Watch Alumni patrons and several members explain why they think the programme is a great opportunity for other former Macmillan professionals.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the alumni programme, please download this PDF or email email@example.com.
Join this online group to create, read or join discussions about cancer care and connect with other professionals. You can also promote your service, events and job opportunities. Find out more and join the group.
