Study days

Coventry University have designed one day learning events to create a face-to-face learning opportunity for health and social care professionals new to, and increasingly working with teenagers/young adults (TYA’s) with cancer. 

Who should attend:

All staff who work with TYA’s within varied health and social care/voluntary settings are welcome. For example staff who come into contact with TYA’s with cancer in their work role such as hospital and hospice staff/volunteers, outpatient staff, social workers, youth workers.

Delegates will:

  • Be given a CPD Certificate of Attendance.
  • Be provided with lunch.
  • Network, share ideas and learn about what’s available locally and nationally to support them and the patients they care for.

The cost of the event is free, however we reserve the right to request remuneration of £55 to recoup costs in the event of any cancellation.
