Cancer in the Community e-learning course

The Royal Marsden School has launched a free Cancer in the Community e-learning course.

The course is composed of four standalone modules (40 to 50 minutes duration each):

  • Cancer Prevention and Screening
  • Cancer Diagnosis and Staging
  • Cancer Treatments
  • Living With and Beyond Cancer

The materials have been written by clinical specialists and experts at The Royal Marsden School and will enable healthcare professionals of all grades, working in a range of community settings, to broaden their knowledge of key aspects of cancer care.  This work was commissioned by Health Education England (HEE) and is available nationally. Key features include:

Videos and animation to enhance the learning and emphasise key areas

Quizzes to embed learning and track progress

‘Deeper dive’ resources and workbook to enable learners to explore topics in more depth, and to record their own personal learning and reflection

Certificate upon completion

This e-learning course will be relevant to all qualified and non-qualified community-based health and social care workers, including community matrons, nursing staff, allied health professionals (including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and dieticians) and support workers who meet patients with cancer.

The modules are available on the e-learning for healthcare website (either on an open access basis or for registered users) or you can download the source files from the NHS eLearning Repository to use in your own Learning Management System or Virtual Learning Environment. Alternatively, if you are unable to download from these sources or would like further information, please contact the School:
