With earlier screening detection diagnosis and multiple therapeutic options, Cancer survivorship is rising sharply. More and more cancer patients are being cared for in the community.

In Ireland, in 2017 the Department of Health published a national cancer strategy.

The National Cancer Control Programme (NCCP) and the Irish College of General Practitioners (ICGP) have identified specific educational gaps in the knowledge of those doctors, nurses, Pharmacists and other members of the primary care team caring for cancer patients and their families in the community.

iheed, in partnership with University College Cork developed an innovative, inter-professional  team-based on-line educational programme, which addressed the specific knowledge, skills and expertise required by those busy healthcare professionals to provide better care to their patients.
