The Cancer online nursing CPD course examines Australia’s major cancer types to enhance your knowledge of the pathophysiology of cancer.

In Australia, cancer remains a common disease and the risk of developing cancer increases dramatically with age. The interplay of environmental and hereditary factors affects the risk of an individual developing cancer and their capacity to respond to treatment. However, an increased understanding of the pathophysiology of cancer has enabled the development of several effective treatment options.

This continuing professional development course provides nurses with a focus on cancers that have the largest effect on Australians. This measurement is based on cancers with the highest number of diagnosis per year and highest mortality, including:

• Lung cancer.
• Colorectal cancer.
• Breast cancer.
• Prostate cancer.
• Melanoma.
• Pancreatic cancer.

Upon successful completion of the Cancer continuing professional development course, you will confidently define different types of cancer growth and understand how cells initially become cancerous. Benefit from this online nursing CPD course, which offers practice questions and reflective questions to provide a framework for your continuing professional development. This helps you define a CPD learning plan and satisfies the continuing professional development requirements set by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.

Successful completion of this online learning module accumulates one hour of continuing professional development points for nurses.

Content for this nursing continuing professional development course is derived from “Cancer” by Judy Craft and Christopher Gordon in Understanding Pathophysiology by Craft, Gordon, Tiziani, Heuther, McCance, Brashers and Rote (2011).
