The Westmead Breast Cancer Institute in collaboration with the Australian College of Nursing (ACN) developed this program to support rural and remote nurses to gain a better understanding of the clinical diagnosis and management of patients with breast cancer, within a multidisciplinary setting. This program offers students the opportunity to access blended learning through a 5 day face to face program in a speciality unit, with learning supported by access to online resources. During the program students can expect to gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to provide holistic care to the patient experiencing breast cancer specifically in the areas of:

  • screening and diagnosing breast cancer
  • the psychological impact of breast cancer
  • breast cancer treatments and managing their effects
  • the role of the breast care nurse in coordination of care for breast cancer patients
