Training and support available for specialist nurses

written by

Leukaemia Care, Charity

National blood cancer support charity, Leukaemia CARE, will be holding a Haematology Nurses Conference on Wednesday 4th November at The Christie School of Oncology in Manchester.

Up to 70 delegates will be able to attend the training aimed at clinical nurse specialists and nurse practitioners working in haemato-oncology.

The conference is accredited by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) for seven Continuous Professional Development (CPD) hours and focuses on various blood cancer topics including disease information, late effects, new and future treatments and the emotional impact of a diagnosis to support them in delivering the best possible care for patients

Esther Wroughton, Care Director at Leukaemia CARE said: “We know there is a lack of support and training available for people working within haematology so the aim of our annual nurses conference is to make further learning possible for nurses working within this field.”

Leukaemia CARE offers support, information and advice to patients, carers, family and friends affected by blood cancer. Its support services include: 24-hour Care Line, nationwide support groups, patient literature, patient and carer conferences and advocacy.

Places cost £60 with a 10% discount available when four or more nurses book at the same time. Places can be booked by calling Leukaemia CARE direct on 08088 010 444 or by booking online.
