The Cancer Care programme from University of Liverpool will enable you to further your educational and professional development within the speciality of oncology; to drive forward practice improvements, expand the evidence base and improve care for all cancer patients.
This multi-professional part time programme allows registered healthcare practitioners to undertake master's level study whilst continuing with your NHS role. It has two intakes per year: Semester one (September) and Semester 2 (February) with both mandatory and optional module choices.
This master's level pathway is intended to enable you as a health and social care professional working with cancer patients, their carers and families in a variety of care settings throughout the cancer journey; to critically explore the evidence base underpinning decision- making and best practice.
The taught postgraduate programmes in the School of Health Sciences provide an opportunity for healthcare professionals to develop, specialise and extend the scope of their skills into new areas, to meet the constantly evolving service demands for advanced practitioners and senior health professionals.
A Level 7 qualification is a pre-requisite for those Allied Health and Social Work practitioners who wish to progress into Advanced Practice.
As well as developing expert oncology knowledge, the programme aims to develop a practitioner with relevant reflective, communication, supportive care, clinical, leadership, research and educational skills and knowledge, which will enable them to work innovatively. Either autonomously or as part of the wider oncology health and social care team, within their scope of practice to improve quality of life outcomes for all cancer patients in their care.
