The 4th iteration of the Clinical Placement Program in Cancer Survivorship (CPPiCS), funded by the Victorian Government, aims to improve cancer survivorship care through enhancing capacity of allied health professionals (AHPs) and practice nurses (PNs) to deliver cancer survivorship services and information. This will be achieved by the completion of clinical observership placements with our partner host sites throughout Victoria that provide cancer survivorship care.
Program components include:
- 3-5 hours of pre-placement cancer survivorship education (online)
- a once off 3-8 hours clinical placement at an acute, rehabilitation or community health service in Victoria (flexible placements available from November 2022 – April 2024)
- Access to cancer survivorship education events post placement
Participant eligibility criteria includes:
- Currently working as a practice nurse or an allied health professional
- Currently practicing in Victoria, Australia
- Fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (3 doses minimum) and Influenza in accordance with Victorian Government guidelines. Unfortunately, this program is unable to accept participants who are not vaccinated, despite a medical exemption.
