Behaviour Change and Cancer Prevention course
The latest evidence, guidance and support on very brief advice specifically designed for GPs to implement in their practice in the UK.
Through the CRUK and RCGP Strategic Partnership, CRUK has sponsored the development of an e-learning module on the RCGP e-learning platform. This module will provide the latest evidence, guidance and support on very brief advice specifically designed for GPs to implement in their practice in the UK.
The module will highlight the links between cancer and smoking, obesity and alcohol and describe the evidence for Very Brief Advice (VBA) on behaviour changes to reduce cancer risk. Using case studies, it will give practical explanations on how to deliver effective VBA for the different high risk behaviours in time pressured consultations in as little as 30 seconds. VBA can be used appropriately and practically within any consultation and save GP consultation time.
The course is now live and is free to anyone registered on the RCGP Online Learning Environment. It is aimed at healthcare professionals who would like to promote behaviour change in their patients to reduce their cancer risk.
