medac Pharma have launched a new digital education platform for UK healthcare professionals, medac Academy. Initially with content created for Urology nurses it features a range of 6 interactive modules which give a comprehensive evidence-based overview of Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer (NMIBC), from diagnosis and staging, to the more practical side of intravesical administration, finishing off with case studies which consolidate nurses learning from the modules using a ‘real life’ setting.
The NMIBC modules and case studies were written by Consultant Urologist Hugh Mostafid (Royal Surrey Hospital) and Clinical Nurse Specialist Kathryn Chatterton (Guys and St Thomas’) who have previously hosted practical workshops with medac Pharma for Urology nurses.
The content has been accredited by the CPD Certification Service and will allow nurses to undertake the modules as part of their Continued Professional Development. This can be done at a time that suits each individual and the design of the modules allows nurses to pick up where they left off when returning to them after a break.
Paula Alchorne, President Elect of EAUN has reviewed the educational content and has praised them for consolidating clinical information and guidelines on NMIBC in one space as this is something that has not been easily accessible in the past;
“I have been a urology nurse for more than 25 years, I could only have hoped for a course like this when I first started treating patients with intravesical treatments. I found it covered a wide breadth of urology knowledge and made me think about certain components. It covers a range of different topics including case studies which I thought was a great idea. I will definitely get the rest of my Bladder Cancer CNSs to do the online course.”
UK Healthcare Professionals interested in signing up for the medac Academy Education Platform can do so by visiting www.medacacademy.co.uk. The learning hub provides quality education that include clinical data, best practice approaches and the opportunity to attain required CPD points at each HCPs own pace.
