Introduction to blood cancer course

An online course designed for new starters on a haematology ward, or healthcare professionals looking to improve their knowledge of basic haemato-oncology concepts to care for blood cancer patients.

I'm currently working in a busy ward and dealing with patients who have blood cancers, as well as those who need blood transfusions. Everything I've learned from this online course will help me be a better nurse.

Nurse recommendations

The Blood Cancer UK online training course is extremely helpful in the training of new staff members for a basic introduction to haematology nursing. It saves time for the senior nurses in delivering face to face teaching sessions.

As part of their induction to training I ask them to complete this eLearning package and print off the certificate for evidence. We specialise in haematological malignancies, and I think it's a great learning package.
