Malnutrition in cancer eLearning program

AIMS

This project aims to review, update and re-launch the eLearning program.

SUMMARY

The Malnutrition in Cancer eLearning program, hosted on the eviQ Education website was developed in 2014 within Phase II of this program of work. An evaluation of the program’s effectiveness was undertaken within Phase III (2016-17) that demonstrated it was an effective platform to improve and sustain clinician knowledge and practice relating to malnutrition. This project reviewed and updated the eLearning program through literature, key stakeholder feedback and incorporating relevant findings of the Cancer Malnutrition: Feeding everyone from hospital to home project (specifically around the education needs/requests of GP’s and practice nurses, the education needs of dietitians and to incorporate the VCMC program’s ‘new look and feel’). This update has refreshed the full eLearning program and created a new short course targeting primary care clinicians. 

Project timeline: May 2018 - Nov 2019
