After Cancer Care

After Cancer Care

A patient's cancer experience does not end with treatment. As more people survive and thrive, many will also deal with post-cancer physical and psychological effects. This unique training aims to support family physicians and other primary care practitioners to provide after cancer care to their patients.

After completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Discuss some of the considerations to take into account managing a patient after a cancer diagnosis and treatment, including chronic cancer.
  • Describe the surveillance protocols for common pediatric, haematological and visceral cancers
  • Recognize some of the non-physiologic manifestations of cancer aftercare and discuss strategies for effectively managing them.
  • Recognize common side-effects of cancer treatment
  • Recognize red flags/white flags in post-cancer care

This continuing professional development (CPD) program has been designed to consider the following roles as defined by the CanMEDS Physician Competency Framework:

  • Medical Expert
  • Communicator
  • Advocate

MDcme (on behalf of its consortium partners) protects the privacy of personal and other information regarding course registrants. MDcme will not release personally identifiable information to a third party without an individual's consent, except such information as is required for reporting purposes to the body or bodies accrediting this course for continuing education study credits. MDcme collects and reviews all course data (registration/course completion statistics, pre/post-test and satisfaction survey) to determine if a course meets participants' learning needs. Data is reviewed to improve existing courses and to inform the development of future course offerings. If an evaluation report is provided to a third party, all data is summarized, with no participant identifying information included. Given the importance and potential impact of some courses, evaluation data may be presented and/or published in academic venues. Again, this data is always summarized, with no identifying information included.

At times, a contributing/partner organization involved in a course may request individual participant data from pre/post or evaluation surveys for quality improvement or educational research purposes. This data would be de-identified so would not be associated with any personally identifiable information such as your name, profession, city, etc.

If requested by a contributing/partner organization:

Do you consent to the release of your individual, de-identified pre/post or evaluation survey data for the purposes of quality improvement or educational research?
