Professional and Continuing Education: Perspectives of Psycho-Oncology

The Perspectives of Psycho-Oncology module explores the psychological issues patients experience when receiving radiation therapy, and the importance of recognising and treating psychological challenges. By completing this module you’ll be able to discuss the coping mechanisms used by oncology patients, as well as quality of life issues and the psychological impact of side effects. You will also recognise the importance of providing information using effective communication, and the emotional and existential issues of dying. This module will enable you to develop strategies for communicating with your patients about their wellbeing, and to recognise when specialist support may be necessary.

On completion of Perspectives of Psycho-Oncology, you’ll receive a Certificate of Completion from Monash University.

Please note enrolment in this self-directed module does not provide access to University-based resources, such as library and journal access. You may wish to check online journal accessibility within your clinical centre prior to enrolment.
