About this course
We are offering the opportunity to purchase fully recorded Webinar Plus courses at any time of the year to suit your schedule.
Would you like to diversify your knowledge of oncology nursing and use that understanding to improve the experience of your cancer patients and clients?
Treating animals diagnosed with cancer is becoming more common in veterinary medicine as many owners now find chemotherapy, surgery and radiation acceptable treatments when exploring the options for their pets. Veterinary nurses can be vital assets to the veterinary practice by administering chemotherapy treatments, providing informative guidance on safe practice and offering caring, compassionate support to the patient and family through their cancer journey.
This course aims to help veterinary nurses develop a greater appreciation of the needs of cancer patients and those of the owners and caregivers within the practice.
Why do this course?
You will develop invaluable knowledge that will maximise your nursing abilities for patients undergoing cancer care in your practice.
This course last ran in November 2019 and contains all of the learning material (webinars, reading material, slides, self assessment exercises) from then, but is not tutor moderated. A set of FAQs is available which represent the questions and concerns previous participants have had and the tutor responses.
You have four weeks in which to view your recorded Webinar Plus course. Courses can be purchased in advance and activated as and when you are ready to start. Your four weeks will start from the point of activation. When you have finished the course you may request a CPD certificate. If you require any assistance please contact the CPD Unit at email@example.com or 01707 666865.
