Supporting material to accompany the Guide to content, planning and delivery for a Macmillan Cancer Course for Practice Nurses.

Macmillan has developed and refined the Cancer Course for Practice Nurses to focus on improving knowledge and confidence, and identifying transferable skills for taking on an active and enhanced role in managing cancer as a long term condition.

This online tool includes a wealth of supporting material to accompany the guide for content, planning and delivery to help you with arranging your course. It includes documents, links, presentations and articles which other course facilitators have used in their programme.

We encourage you to use and adapt it as appropriate for your course.
