This postgraduate programme is aimed at health care professionals from a wide range of backgrounds, including medicine, nursing and allied healthcare disciplines, who are involved in the provision of care to cancer patients. It offers an evidence‐based approach to the management of physical and psychosocial issues that arise in cancer survivorship. Cancer survivorship is recognised as a distinct period within the cancer continuum that commences at diagnosis and continues through until the end of life.
This course is delivered by a multidisciplinary academic team and examines the physical and psychosocial sequelae of cancer and its treatment on cancer survivors and provides students with the knowledge and skills to apply evidence‐based practice to cancer survivorship care. For the first time the National Cancer Survivorship Programme under the 2017‐2026 National Cancer Strategy places cancer survivorship at the heart of the Irish cancer agenda, therefore this course suits healthcare professionals who wish to upskill in the evaluation, development and implementation of cancer survivorship care.
This course is the first of its kind in Ireland, with no identical course offered internationally. It provides health and social care professionals evidence-based knowledge to design and deliver cutting edge cancer survivorship care. Graduates have also pursued further clinical and academic research.
