Thyroid Cancer


The clinical management of thyroid 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.

We have developed three modules to provide useful tools and resources to better support your thyroid cancer patients throughout their journey.

Please see our disclaimer regarding module content.


Each 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 thyroid cancer modules are accredited by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN). The RCN cannot confirm the competence of any practitioner. You will be able to download your certificate upon completion.

Nurses play a key role in the provision of care to patients who have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, supporting them through their various treatment therapies.

CPD Module

The module ‘Introduction to Thyroid Cancer’ has been developed to provide you with an understanding of thyroid gland physiology, common thyroid conditions, and the basic epidemiology and pathophysiology of thyroid cancer in adults.
