Professional Practice (Cancer and Palliative Care)

Studied entirely online, the MSc Professional Practice (Cancer and Palliative Care) is a flexible, modular course specifically for health professionals working with patients with a cancer diagnosis.

The MSc Professional Practice in Cancer and Palliative Care will enable you to transfer complex theoretical knowledge into comprehensive, focused and patient-centred clinical practice. You will develop a comprehensive knowledge of the philosophical frameworks that support professional practice within cancer/ palliative care and a critical understanding of the elements which constitute professional practice. What's more, you will learn how to innovate and develop professional practice in a way that enhances patient and client experience.
