Free online learning for GPs

The role of GPs in diagnosing blood cancer early is crucial, but diagnosis is not always easy. Read more about how we're working with GPs to diagnose blood cancer sooner.

GPs play a crucial role in diagnosing blood cancer early. But the fact that they may only see one case of blood cancer every two years, combined with the notoriously vague and non-specific symptoms, means that diagnosis can be a challenge.

Our free online learning and training modules are designed to support GPs in recognising the symptoms of a blood cancer to aid early diagnosis and stay up-to-date on the latest blood cancer information.

Our two 30-minute modules are completely free have been developed in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) eLearning team. They take a closer look at the symptoms of blood cancers and feature case study scenarios, interactive content and tools to put learning into practice.

Combined, the two modules offer one hour of continuous professional development (CPD) points and is a great starting point for GPs who want to develop their knowledge on the haematological cancers.

As with many cancers, early diagnosis saves lives and is fundamental to improving treatment outcomes. Our online resource is designed to support GPs and equip them with the knowledge to spot the signs and symptoms of blood cancer earlier and refer patients for appropriate specialist tests and treatment if a blood cancer is suspected.

We hope that this project will both improve awareness of blood cancers and improve outcomes for patients by ensuring they are referred for treatment earlier.

 

We're calling on our supporters to take a flyer to their GPs telling them all about our free, online training modules about blood cancers. Can you help?
