Training Opportunities

All Wales Cancer Care Review Online Training for Primary Care – starting 14 Sep

This free training is aimed at Practice Nurses and also other qualified professionals interested in carrying out Cancer Care Reviews in their GP Practice.

Cancer Care Reviews are particularly relevant during the Covid-19 outbreak as they cover a range of topics such as the social, psychological and practical aspects of cancer, and not just the medical and physical conditions. People with cancer can be living with fear, isolation, uncertainty and loneliness and this training will enable the Primary Care Team to offer additional support to their cancer patients at this time.

The Macmillan Primary Care Cancer Framework Nursing Team will deliver the training starting on Tuesday 14 September 2021 between 12.15 pm – 1 pm for five consecutive weeks. Following the training the participant will have the confidence and tools to carry out holistic cancer care reviews and care plans.

To register your interest in the training email or for more information on Cancer Care Reviews click here.

Please note that if you attended this training in Autumn 2020 or February 2021 you do NOT need to attend this round of training.
