This module offers students who are registered health professionals the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of systematic anti-cancer treatments (SACTs). It explores the biological mechanisms targeted by SACTs, the mechanism of action of SACT and treatment efficacy and side effects of individual drugs.
The module focuses on the use of stratified healthcare, based on pharmacogenomics data, and the management of treatment-related toxicities in patients receiving SACTS, illustrated by patient case studies. The aim of the module is to provide students with in-depth knowledge of managing the care of patients receiving SACTs.
