Cancer Council Victoria is encouraging nurses from across Victoria to take part in the next Nurse Ambassador Program (NAP) in August and September.

The free program provides training to practice nurses looking to broaden their scope of practice to include cancer screening and prevention activities across their whole organisation, with a focus on under-screened communities.

Topics for the next NAP include:

  • Information on under-screened communities
  • The use of plain language in cancer screening
  • Breast screening
  • The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program
  • Hepatitis prevention and immunisation
  • Cervical screening, self-collection and HPV

Nurses will be recognised as a ‘Nurse Cancer Screening Ambassador’ after completing a series of four online webinars and submitting a reflective practice activity. Upon completion nurses will also receive a certificate including eight CPD points and a Nurse Cancer Screening Ambassador poster and badge. Nurses will be further supported with ongoing cancer screening updates, information and professional development opportunities via access to Cancer Council Victoria’s Speculum newsletter.

The NAP is delivered over four weeks between August 17 and September 5, with one weekly webinar running for two hours.
