With this mission in mind, the UNC Cancer Network has created various one hour lectures cancer health professionals speak about cancer related topics. The available lectures are categorized into two series: the RN and Allied Health lectures and the Community College Oncology lectures.
- RN and Allied Health Lectures – These lectures focus on putting theory into practice for those responsible for the direct care of cancer patients (nurses, advanced practice nurses, radiology and radiation oncology technicians, social workers, dietitians, physical therapists, speech therapists, etc.). Special attention is given to equip nurses and allied health professionals with tools they need to be successful when caring for cancer patients.
- Community Lunch and Learn Lectures – These lectures are focused on providing information to the general public about cancer, prevention, survivor-ship, and other health-related topics. The content is designed for cancer patients, survivors, friends, family, care givers and allied health professionals.
