This fully online course has been designed for registered health professionals who are required to administer SACT or manage the care of patients prescribed SACT treatment. This includes staff who conduct pre-treatment consultations or run oral SACT clinics.
We need specially trained and educated staff to provide safe, evidence-based, person-centred and holistic care that optimises the experiences and outcomes of people with cancer. We Are clinical cancer educators and We Will commit to using our specialist knowledge and skills to educate staff to treat and care for people with cancer.
I never had Chemotherapy experience as a Registered Nurse and at first, I felt very anxious and confused as these were not the usual treatments that I have encountered.
However, when I started the course, the speakers were all very experienced and accommodating to our questions.
It alleviated my anxieties and I have felt more confident in dealing with patients who are receiving SACT.
I have had the privilege of speaking and listening at Academy events and am amazed at the level of education and care training the students are receiving.
They are receiving a first-class start to their careers which can only be a bonus to patients like myself.
The Academy has had a wonderful start due to the hard work of the organisers and hope it carries on for many years to come.
I found the online SACT course extremely comprehensive. It developed my understanding of SACT at a cellular, molecular & pharmaceutical level in a very user-friendly way. Also, all learning is focussed on patient-focused care, which I found relevant and useful.
The combination of short video lectures, exercises, and reflections kept me engaged and everything is presented in a logical manner. I found the online support and feedback excellent.
I have advanced my knowledge of SACT through this course and have also furthered my clinical confidence. I found all aspects of the course - from the study days to the online learning - highly relevant to my clinical role and a key factor in my development within the unit.
I genuinely have taken a lot from the course and has only made my love for oncology and haematology grow!!
