NCUK launches NCUK Academy Nurse Course!

Oct 21, 2021

Neuroendocrine Cancer UK is thrilled to announce that we have now launched the competency-based, CPD accredited NCUK Academy Nurse Course.

The NCUK Academy is independent and free-to-access any time. It was designed for nurses (and allied healthcare professionals), working across a range of healthcare settings, to provide a free online resource regarding Neuroendocrine Cancer – what it is, how it may present and how it is diagnosed, treated and managed.

Developed by our specialist nurse, AHP and expert patient faculty and endorsed by UKINETs, the Academy includes a combination of evidence-based, resources, clinical practitioner and patient video presentations and is divided into 4 key inter-related E-learning components:

  • Part 1: An introduction and overview of Neuroendocrine Cancer
  • Part 2: Site Specific Neuroendocrine Cancers
  • Part 3: Related Syndromes
  • Part 4: Holistic Care Considerations

The Academy is a competency-based modular programme that aims to work from promoting awareness to encouraging a deeper understanding of Neuroendocrine Cancers – enhancing knowledge, problem-solving and the critical thinking skills of those completing it.

We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our incredible specialist nurse, AHP and expert patient faculty: Angie Williamson, Catherine Bouvier, Gail McKane, Irene Wotherspoon, Kate Quirk, Kym Winter, Liz Quaglia, Mike Tadman, Nikie Jervis, Wendy Martin,Yasmin Chotai de Lima for their contribution to this innovative course.
