Understanding Cancer support Level 2 Certificate
One in two people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. For many people, diagnosis can be a daunting and overwhelming time. It’s important that people can access the right levels of care and services when they need them most. As cancer treatments are improved and more people survive cancer, it’s vital to understand the impact of living with cancer long term and the best way to provide support. This short course is great for anyone working in health and social care, and it will also be useful if you care for someone living with cancer.
