Course summary

Overview

The MSc Cancer Care is a programme produced and delivered by the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, Liverpool and University of Liverpool. The programme is designed for you if you are a registered nurse, health and social care professional, someone who provides care for people with a cancer diagnosis within their care setting; or if you wish to develop your own practice in the holistic care of the person with cancer.

The broad impact of a cancer diagnosis and the complex journey of the patient and those important to them will be critically explored; enhancing awareness of individual needs and the provision of a holistic, patient centred approach to care. You will critically explore your own practice in the holistic care of the person with cancer, in order to influence development of others (peers/teams) and/or service they support in their role.

The programme 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.
