About this course
Would you like to diversify your knowledge of oncology nursing and use that understanding to improve the experience of your cancer patients and clients?
Treating animals diagnosed with cancer is becoming more common in veterinary medicine as many owners now find chemotherapy, surgery and radiation acceptable treatments when exploring the options for their pets. Veterinary nurses can be vital assets to the veterinary practice by administering chemotherapy treatments, providing informative guidance on safe practice and offering caring, compassionate support to the patient and family through their cancer journey.
This course aims to help veterinary nurses develop a greater appreciation of the needs of cancer patients and those of the owners and caregivers within the practice.
Why do this course?
You will develop invaluable knowledge that will maximise your nursing abilities for patients undergoing cancer care in your practice.
The webinars for this course will be pre-recorded and can be viewed as recorded versions throughout the course. A live Q&A session with the tutor will run on the following dates at 2pm London time.
