This level 6 module is designed for nurses who either care for patients receiving chemotherapy or who wish to expand their knowledge to be able to support patients before, during or after their treatment. It enables the student to explore the theoretical principles and clinical issues that underpin the care of a patient receiving chemotherapy.

For those students who are required to demonstrate competence in the delivery of chemotherapy to patients, this will form part of the assessment process. These students should ensure that they are competent in cannulation prior to attending this module.  If you are not competent you will be expected to attend a one day theoretical course prior to the module commencing to enable you to develop your competencies in cannulation in clinical practice before the course begins in the autumn. 

This module explores specialist knowledge, practice and attitudes that underpin the enhancement of chemotherapy care by promoting assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation.
