Lung Cancer

Background
The clinical management of lung cancer is a constantly evolving topic. It can be challenging for busy nurses to keep up to date with rapidly changing guidelines and new evidence around best practice and effective clinical management. Here, you can access modules to support your daily work that will help you give your patients the best quality care. Please see our disclaimer regarding module content.

Duration
Each foundation and advanced e-learning module will take you just 60 minutes of module-based learning. Pre-reading will take approximately 30-60 minutes. You can find pre-reading materials for each module in the ‘resources’ section beside the modules. Saving where you left off, you can dip in and out of the modules whenever you have the time. You are encouraged to take notes/save personal screenshots during the module to reinforce your learning.

Our lung cancer modules are accredited by the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Nursing (RCN). The RCN cannot confirm the competence of any practitioner.

Immunotherapy is a fundamentally different approach to cancer treatment which has unique implications for oncology nurses in their day-to-day clinical practice.


CPD Module

Immunotherapy foundation and advanced modules have been developed to provide oncology nurses with timely knowledge about the role of immunotherapy in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and to empower nurses with the skills to understand and manage these unique considerations in their clinical practice.
