  • A very good course. Easy to understand and well formatted. Opens your mind to issues not obvious to everyone.
  • I found the content simple and easy to understand. For individuals who have no experience of cancer I think it is a great overview.
  • Good course for those working in the palliative care field. Helps me to identify patients who have financial needs more easily and has given me greater awareness of the benefits available.
