Cancer Australia has developed six breast cancer online courses in collaboration with the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM). The courses are available free of charge on ACRRM’s online learning platform. If you are not an ACRRM member and wish to apply for free access to these courses (sponsored via Cancer Australia), please click here to register.
Breast cancer contributes a significant burden to the Australian population.
To support the needs of people affected by breast cancer, a series of 6 best practice resources were developed.
The learning modules within the Breast Cancer package highlight some of these resources and encourage health professionals working with people affected by breast cancer to implement evidence-based practices.
Treatments for breast cancer are complex, given over extended periods of time, and often result in short and longer-term effects. People affected by breast cancer may need:
- Information and support to reduce their risk of developing breast cancer due to modifiable behaviours.
- Information and effective strategies to find breast cancer early
- Information about new and emerging approaches to treat and manage breast cancer
- A coordinated, multidisciplinary approach providing the latest evidence-based care
- Supportive care approaches to prevent and manage the range of symptoms and effects associated with breast cancer and its treatment.
