The Clinical Placement Program in Cancer Survivorship (CPPiCS), funded by the Victorian Government and co-ordinated by the Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre, is underway and will be commencing the 2nd round of participant recruitment in February 2023.
We are looking for practice nurses (nurses working in GP and primary care settings) as we acknowledge just how pivotal their role is with cancer survivors and provision of survivorship care.
CPPiCS aims to improve cancer survivorship care by enhancing the capacity of allied health professionals (AHP’s) and practice nurses to deliver cancer survivorship services and information.
This is achieved through completion of observational placements at partner host sites currently providing survivorship care across Victoria. Presently, our partner host sites include Austin Health, Bendigo Health, Barwon Health, Echuca Regional Health, healthAbility, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, South West Healthcare & ICON Cancer Centre and the Victorian Paediatric Long Term Follow-up Program.
The program is completely free for participants and will involve 3-5 hours of pre-placement online education in cancer survivorship along with 3-8 hours of a clinical placement at an acute, rehabilitation or community health service.
Participants can apply here.
The closing date for round 2 participant applications is 5pm, 15 March 2023.
