Free online course ‘Demystifying Targeted Cancer Treatments’
We have created a central resources hub for Health Professionals which hosts all of our CRUK resources and further materials to help with managing the pandemic. We are updating the information as guidance changes. There is also a page specifically for patients on our about cancer hub.
Free online course
Designed for nurses and members of clinical research that explores the science behind new targeted cancer treatments.
Our free online course designed for clinical research nurses and members of the clinical research team explores the science behind new targeted cancer treatments.
Demystifying Targeted Cancer Treatments runs two or three times a year on the online learning platform, Future Learn.
The course covers some of the latest targeted treatments and immunotherapies in bowel, lung, breast, skin and blood cancer. Delivered over a five-week period, the learning is structured in bite-sized chunks so you can select what’s most relevant to you and dip in and out at your own pace. It includes video interviews, patient case studies, quizzes and interactive discussion with the educators and others on the course, and takes approximately 2–3 hours a week.
The course is led by expert educators, including Elaine Vickers who debunks the science behind the treatments, and you’ll hear from leading scientists and doctors involved in treating patients and advancing medicine. Experienced research nurses also share their knowledge and practical advice, and patients describe their treatment experience.
