As Australians age and more people live beyond their cancer diagnosis, cancer survivorship is becoming a major chronic condition.
As Australians age and more people live beyond their cancer diagnosis, cancer survivorship is becoming a major chronic condition.

Accordingly, the new Cancer Survivorship for Primary Care Practitioners massive open online learning course (MOOC) was developed in a collaboration between the Victorian Government, the University of Melbourne and the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre.

Course content applies both a medical and psychosocial lens to the topics:
• Survivorship Fundamentals
• Communication and Coordination of Care
• Supportive Care, Palliative Care
• Surveillance
• Late and Long-Term Effects and New Cancer Therapies.

Real patient narratives feature in the interactive course which was first made available in July 2018. You can now enrol for the next course to commence Monday 1 October 2018. Modules can be undertaken at your own pace, part-time over 4 weeks.

The program is accredited through The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), Australian College of Nursing (ACN), Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA) and Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM).
