OVERVIEW OF PROGRAMME

(attach any relevant documents)

The Cancer and Continuing Care (CCC) integrated clinical unit (ICU) is one of 5 ICUs in year 4. This ICU is delivered by the Departments of Oncology, Primary Care, and Palliative Medicine. It is structured around ‘a patient journey’ from diagnosis of a Long Term Condition and cancer, on-going management of the long-term condition including acute exacerbations, through rehabilitation, advanced disease and then to end of life care.
The six week course consists of; six large group teaching days (Mondays), a three week cancer care placement and a three week primary care placement. As part of the cancer care placement all students spend 4 days in a hospice in pairs. As part of the large group teaching days students have a half day on symptom management (pain, nausea and vomiting, constipation and breathlessness), a half day on end of life care and various other sessions such as communication and psychological issues.
Throughout the five years ‘generic’ teaching of communication skills, ethics, team working will have palliative care examples.
Students are also able to choose an 18 month Extended Student Research and Evaluation Project in Palliative Medicine, spend their elective in palliative medicine and some students have a week placement in a hospice in year 5 as part of an integrated clinical firm..
