Our training, workshops and study days
Our training and workshops equip healthcare professionals with the confidence to reduce the variation in treatment and care across the UK.
Online course on bowel cancer screening
We partnered with GatewayC, an online cancer education platform, to produce a course on bowel cancer screening and early diagnosis. The course gives healthcare professionals a better understanding of the new FIT (Faecal Immunochemical Test) bowel cancer screening test, such as the benefits of the test and the role it plays in symptomatic patients, and also aims to increase confidence in promoting bowel screening to patients. It is free to all professionals across England.
If you’re based in Scotland and Wales you’re welcome to access the course but won’t be offered a CPD certificate
Colorectal cancer study days
Our study days are designed for colorectal nurses and other practitioners caring for people in primary and secondary care settings. These study days are free of charge.
Very worthwhile study day. Came away with a lot of new knowledge that I have passed onto colleagues but have also discussed with my patients.
Typical presentations from a wide range of clinical experts include:
- An update on the NHS bowel screening programme
- Colorectal cancer risk factors and prevention
- Assessing symptoms
- Advances in treatment for colorectal cancer
- Living with and beyond colorectal cancer
- Genetic conditions and management of people at higher risk of colorectal cancer
- Understanding the psychological impact of a colorectal cancer diagnosis
Wales study day 2020
After careful consideration and in line with current government guidance on social distancing, we’ve taken the difficult decision to cancel our Wales Study Day planned for Friday 10 July in Cardiff.
You may be interested in joining our professionals network. This is an active community for any health professional providing treatment, care and support to people with bowel cancer.
Access the latest resources from our study days and sign up to the National Colorectal Cancer Nurses Network (NCCNN) to be the first to know when the next study day is:
