Teenage and Young Adult Cancer Care

Working closely with Teenage Cancer Trust (the leading UK charity in this field) professional organisations and clinical experts from across the multi-disciplinary team, including young people with cancer themselves, this collaborative way of working ensures that contemporary clinical practice is strongly embedded in what we do and supports the strategic development of the workforce and services for this niche group of patients. This is aimed at all of the multidisciplinary team who are involved with teenage cancer care and encourages students to work together online, to develop specialist knowledge and learn how the various roles combine to offer evidenced-based teenage cancer care. Through the presented materials, students will examine the complex social and political nature of health and social care impacting teenagers with cancer and help shape their professional development.
