MSc Cancer Care and CPD modules

   Programme start: January and September 2024

Designed and delivered by the University of Liverpool and the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, this programme is aimed at a variety of allied healthcare professionals who wish to develop their practice in the holistic care of individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer.

This programme is designed for you if you

are a registered nurse, health and social care professional, someone who provides care for people with a cancer diagnosis within their care setting or if you wish to develop your own practice in the holistic care of cancer patients.

This is a multi-professional, 3 year part-time programme with both mandatory and optional module choices, with the option of on-line and on campus learning.

You can tailor the programme to your area of oncology interest and expertise which further enables you to develop, progress, drive forward practice improvements, expand the evidence base and ultimately improve the care of the cancer patient.

Modules can be taken as part of the programme or as CPD. Some of our most popular modules include: 

DEVELOPING PRACTICE IN SYSTEMIC ANTI-CANCER THERAPIES (SACT) ADMINISTRATION AND CARE (CANC701) Content and assessment align closely to the Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy (SACT) Competency Passport.

DEVELOPING PRACTICE IN PALLIATIVE AND END OF LIFE CARE (CANC702)This blended teaching and learning module is aimed at Health Care professionals who provide care for people with a cancer diagnosis within their care setting; who wish to develop their critical understanding of palliative and end of life care of the person with cancer. Assessment includes a written critical review exploring theory versus practice, where learners identify a practice issue/gap and devise a proposal for development and use of a practice- based resource that aims to address the gap/need.


The module delivers a series of fascinating 90-minute podcasts from a range of clinical experts and researchers across a range of LGBTQ+ themes. Online case discussions provide learners with the opportunity to collaborate with peers and experts. You are encouraged to reflect on their own experience and integrate this into the discussion of potential solutions and care plans.
