Leading the way in cancer education
10 May 2007
The Faculty of Medicine through CIPHER (the Centre for Innovation in Professional Health Education and Research) has recently been awarded by Cancer Australia the contract to develop Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for Cancer Professionals, General Practitioners and Counsellors.
The project, directed by Dr Tim Shaw, director of CIPHER, provides the Faculty with an ideal opportunity to play a significant role in the delivery of health education across the spectrum of training and provides exciting research and development opportunities.
CIPHER is leading this $2.5M project in collaboration with the Cancer Council of Australia, the Clinical Oncological Society of Australia, the National Breast Cancer Council and the The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).
