A free online course for nurses on targeted cancer treatments is relaunching early next year.

The Cancer Research UK course relaunches in February 2020 and includes new and improved content on immunotherapy.

Cancer education specialist Elaine Vickers explains the science behind these treatments, and nurses discuss managing side effects and the practicalities of giving such treatments to patients, including chimeric antigen receptors cell therapy (CAR-T) and checkpoint inhibitors.

Designed for cancer research nurses, research teams and cancer nurses, the course takes five weeks based on two to three hours learning each week through a variety of articles, videos, interactive quizzes and discussion.
