As part of the work in strengthening the workforce in Oncology, a series of educational webinars have been designed, with specific focus on physical therapy skills for working with people with bone metastases, and people with lung cancer, and communication skills around discussing sexuality and intimacy with people impacted by cancer. Presented by a range of academic experts, the webinars are being hosted from October 2020-February 2021 and provide oncology clinicians with opportunities to refresh and update skills in these aspects of care.
Can-EX: Great South Coast Community Cancer Expo
The Great South Coast Community Cancer Expo, CAN-Ex 2019, took place at Deakin University, Warrnambool Campus, on Saturday 19th October 2019. The concept was based on enhancing awareness about available treatments and local services to the community of the South West region. Over the course of the event, local clinicians and a range of service providers provided free information sessions, as well as displays and networking opportunities for those involved in delivering care and support services. Medical health practitioners shared their knowledge and expertise with the community at a “Questions & Answers” session, and a wide range of local health professionals delivered a series of workshops. Alongside the presentations and workshops, a large exhibition space showcased support groups and cancer-related foundations available to the region. Planning is currently underway for Can-EX 2021.
