This is a practice module designed for registered nurses who are required to administer systemic anti-cancer therapy (SACT), or in the case of uro-oncology nurses, intravesical anti-cancer treatment. It will provide you with the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of systemic anti-cancer treatments (SACTs). You will develop the required knowledge and skills to be able to autonomously, safely and competently administer systemic or intravesical anti-cancer therapy.
This module has been designed by professionals experienced in delivering a range of cancer care education, as well as being involved in current practice in the administration of systemic or intravesical anti-cancer therapy. The content of this course aligns with National Chemotherapy Measures (NICE 2018) and the UKONS SACT Competency Passport (2019).

Learning and assessment
The teaching, learning and assessment strategy of the module reflects its student centred, patient-centred and practice-focused approach. The module has an appropriate division between structured learning activities and private study. All of the learning methods to be used will engage the student in both academic and practice learning.
You will have to undertake a period of supervised practice in the administration of systemic or intravesical anti-cancer therapy to gain competence in administering systemic or intravesical anti-cancer therapy against learning outcomes. This will be in your own place of work or a practice setting in which systemic or intravesical anti-cancer therapy is given. This will be arranged by your manager, under the supervision of an agreed practice assessor nominated by your manager who meets current national standards, such as the Cancer Measures Chemotherapy Assessor standards.
