PD Opportunity: Clinical Placement Program in Cancer Survivorship

The Clinical Placement Program in Cancer Survivorship coordinated by the Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre and funded by the Victorian Government, is still accepting applications for practice nurses.

This program aims to improve cancer survivorship care through enhancing capacity of allied health professionals and practice nurses (defined as nurses working in community health / GP settings). It will help to equip practice nurses to incorporate survivorship into care plans and provide appropriate recalls, in addition to enhancing cancer patient outcomes after discharge from specialist care.

Program components:

  • 3-5 hours of online cancer survivorship education
  • 3-8 hours of a clinical placement at an acute, rehabilitation or community health service in Victoria (flexible placements available up to April 2024)
  • Access to cancer survivorship education events
