Descripción del Curso

Gain the tips, tools and confidence to have conversations that could save lives.

Talking about cancer can be difficult. You might be worried that you’ll say the wrong thing or that you simply don’t know enough about the subject.

This course draws on the knowledge of Cancer Research UK experts. Over 3 weeks you’ll find out how to encourage people to make healthy lifestyle changes, access local services or visit their doctor promptly if they notice changes to their body. The skills you gain may also be useful in talking to people already affected by cancer.

Learning is through quizzes, articles, discussions and videos demonstrating conversational dos and don’ts.

The course is suitable for anyone with an interest in the topic and aims to help with both personal and professional conversations about cancer and health.

The course is particularly relevant for those working or volunteering in the following areas: health advocacy, care and support work, community health centres and services, GP surgeries, mental health, nursing, occupational therapy, oncology, osteopathy, pharmacy, physiotherapy, dentistry, public health, radiotherapy, sexual health, social work, or any other healthcare.

The course does not require any previous experience of this subject.
