We want as many people as possible to feel confident talking about cancer, so we've taken the key elements of the Talk Cancer training and put together Cancer Research UK’s first MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) called Talking About Cancer.

Join thousands of people worldwide and learn effective techniques for having conversations that can help save lives.

The course tackles issues such as debunking cancer myths and overcoming barriers, whilst giving you the tips and tools to feel more confident talking about cancer. This might include how to talk to people about ways to reduce the risk of cancer and spotting cancer early.

The course includes the key elements of the Talk Cancer training, and has been developed by our Cancer Awareness Trainers, drawing on their wealth of experience of talking to patients, families and healthcare professionals.

It is a free, three-hour course starts where you can learn at home at your own pace.

It is hosted by the UK’s leading online learning platform, FutureLearn.

You’ll receive more instructions when you sign up and the next one is running in early 2017.
