Our new podcast series will be launching in January 2024.
We will be interviewing a range of expert guests to lift the lid on current issues faced by the cancer workforce.
Expect to hear discussions of clinical practice, personal experiences and practical advice to help improve your knowledge and skills in supporting people affected by cancer.
Our education and training resources are aligned to the Macmillan Person Centred Care Competency Framework (MPCCCF).
The framework shows the roles and competences, education and training required by Macmillan Professionals and the wider cancer workforce to meet the needs of people affected by cancer.
The framework can be used in primary, secondary, tertiary and social care settings enabling you to better meet people’s needs.
Log in to the Learning Hub and join the MPCCCF Community to access the framework and the related support resources.
