Support for nurses

As the cancer population increases, we want to help nurses provide the best care and support possible whilst also supporting them in their careers.

We offer a range of online learning courses and resources to help professional development, as well as tools to support day-to-day interactions with patients and a vast range of expert information for people living with cancer.

Recovery Package and Holistic Needs Assessment

The Recovery Package creates a more fluid connection between people living with cancer and health professionals who can help with their changing needs, whether they’re physical, emotional, practical or financial.

We’ve developed guides and tools to help you deliver this care.

By making small changes, you can support people to help themselves, and spend more time with those who are in greater need of your expertise.

Find out more about the Recovery Package.

Managing the consequences of treatment

Many people are focused on the immediate side-effects of treatment, but you may want to know more about some ongoing effects that can be debilitating if not treated.

By making patients aware of any potential ongoing effects, they are more likely to look out for symptoms and raise concerns early.

Find out more about consequences of treatment and the resources we have.
