Understanding Cancer e-Learning

Tue, 2013-04-16 13:15 -- fatima.almeda

The development of an e-learning programme is aimed primarily at MDT Co-ordinators and Cancer Registration staff. It covers an easy to understand overview of how cancer services are organised in the NHS as well as information about diagnosis, treatments and cancers by tumour site. Other staff groups may also find this training useful to improve their knowledge of the different cancer types.

Each module has been developed and reviewed by clinical experts in the field and the course has been approved by the Institute of Healthcare Management (IHM).

Cervical screening

Wed, 2010-03-10 10:08 -- Anonymous (not verified)

A cervical screening test (previously known as a smear test) is a method of detecting abnormal cells on the cervix. The cervix is the entrance to the womb from the vagina.

Detecting and removing abnormal cervical cells can prevent cervical cancer.

Cervical screening is not a test for cancer; it is a test to check the health of the cells of the cervix. Most women's test results show that everything is normal, but for around 1 in 20 women the test will show some abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix.
