C-Change is pleased to announce that a new section has been added to the web-based Cancer Core Competency toolkit (www.cancercorecompetency.org), providing methods, tools, and insights for strengthening the cancer knowledge and skills for non-oncology health professionals focused on pain and palliative care.
As you may recall, C-Change pursued the Cancer Core Competency Initiative to address shortages in the cancer workforce in a manner that complemented the work of other organizations. Thanks to a generous grant provided by Purdue Pharma, L.P., C-Change awarded grants to four sites that developed competency-based pain and palliative care programs and materials to meet the needs of their target populations.
Please visit the Cancer Core Competency website for more information: www.cancercorecompetency.org.
