This 20 credit postgraduate module that is delivered completely online will enable the students to explore the concept and context of the care of teenagers/adolescence and young adults with cancer. Students will utilise the range of available evidence in order to apply this to their field of practice.
This module can be taken as a stand alone module or as part of the Postgraduate Certificate in Teenager and Young Adult Cancer Care. Normally this would be the second mandatory module to be taken in the Postgraduate Certificate. It enables the multi professional student to critically analyse and evaluate the impact of cancer on the teenager and young adult, their families, friends and services in order to improve outcomes of care.
Specific aspects of care in this age group across the cancer trajectory from diagnosis, through treatment to survival/end of life care will be explored. The role of the professional within the multidisciplinary team that seeks to meet specific needs will be addressed in the context of contemporary Teenage/Young Adult Contemporary Cancer Care.WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?
