This 20 credit masters module that is delivered completely online will enable the students to explore the concept and context of teenagers/adolescence and young adults with cancer in today’s society.
Students will utilise the range of available evidence in order to apply this to their field of practice. This module can be taken as a standalone module or as part of the PG Certificate in Teenage and Young Adult Cancer Care.
Normally this would be the first mandatory module to be taken in the Post Graduate Certificate.
