Community Oncology

Cancer treatments are at their most effective and patients have the most options, the earlier a diagnosis is made. The complications of cancer and its treatment need early recognition and management to improve safety and outcomes.

This course is a response to the need for increasing the awareness of community health care practitioners about cancer -  recognition, diagnosis and referral.
