Education resources for General Practice Nurses
The Macmillan Primary Care Nursing Project has produced a number of online learning resources for General Practice Nurses (GPN) in south west London to assist them in developing their skills to support their patients living with cancer. If you would like further information or would like to share additional resources, please contact the project team on Macnursingproject@swlondon.nhs.uk
These short videos were produced to help GPNs and the wider system in primary care, understand the importance of supporting patients living with cancer following treatment. They also demonstrate how to carry out a cancer care review and offer useful tips and other resources that can be used. Additionally, cancer as a long-term condition is now included in the undergraduate and post graduate nursing curriculum in south west London. We are working with Health Education England and other partners to develop a rotational scheme for GPNs in cancer as a long-term condition. We will also be working with Capital Nurse to input into the Qualification in Specialism specification.
