Learning and development
At Macmillan, we know great care starts with you. That's why we’re committed to giving health and social care professionals the knowledge, skills and training they need to support people living with cancer. As a Macmillan Professional, we'll support you with:
- e-learning courses and workshops
- networking events and conferences
- learning and development grants.
Your new learning and communications hub
We're always looking for new and exciting ways to improve our learning and development offer to help you grow in your professional role.
Starting early next year, we'll launch a new learning hub with accredited, bite-sized courses you can complete whenever and wherever you like. You’ll also be able to share tips and best practice with other professionals through our online communities.
If you're a Macmillan Professional, you'll receive an email invite to the new learning and communications hub, so please look out for it very soon.
We know the needs of people living with cancer are always changing. As a result, so are the demands placed on you. To help you meet the demands of your role, we offer e-learning courses and facilitated workshops on the following themes:
- personalised care and support and clinical care
- emotional health and well-being
- primary and community care
- palliative and end of life care
- leadership, communication skills and personal development.
Virtual classroom workshops
Our virtual classroom workshops focus on specific topics to give you the skills and knowledge you need to provide the very best care for people living with cancer. The morning and afternoon long workshops are delivered by expert facilitators.
Due to coronavirus, we’ve had to temporarily pause all face-to-face events and conferences. Until we're able to meet in person again, we're excited to be running a series of virtual best practice forum webinars for health and social care professionals.
Virtual best practice forums
These webinars help you stay on top of developments in cancer care, learn about best practice and gain insights from expert speakers on a range of topics that matter to you. The webinars, which usually last around 60 to 90 minutes, are open to healthcare professionals in all levels of clinical and non-clinical roles.
Macmillan Professionals Excellence Awards
The Macmillan Professionals Excellence Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the impact of Macmillan professionals and teams who go above and beyond expectations to help people living with cancer live life as fully as they can.
If you're a Macmillan Professional, you can apply for a grant towards the costs of any additional learning and development. It's our way of supporting you personally and professionally, so you can provide the very best care for people living with cancer.
