This online course will introduce health care professionals to oncology. Oncology patients receive care from all health care settings — including tertiary care centres, general hospitals, community care clinics, long term care and home care. They receive care from many health care professionals, depending on their disease, treatment and needs. Given the increasing complexity of this growing patient population, caring for people with cancer and their families involves a particular set of skills and knowledge from a variety of health care professionals.
This course will introduce the essential concepts in oncology, and provide information to those who work with oncology patients and their families.
