Cancer-Related Fatigue - NEW ENERGY

Price: Free!

Mode of delivery: online

Course duration: Approx. 1 hour

Pre-requisites: N/A

Audience: This course is open for all learners including people affected by cancer. It is designed for health professionals working in cancer care and survivorship, including all allied health, nursing, medical and RT clinicians, general practitioners (GPs) and other professionals.  

 

About this learning program:

We know that fatigue disrupts the lives of around half of all cancer patients and survivors. But - patients report they are rarely asked about their fatigue or energy levels during healthcare encounters. One reason health professionals say they avoid asking patients about their fatigue is because they don’t know what to do next. Something CAN be done!

This course provides generic education for health professionals in recognising and managing fatigue in cancer. In three short modules, you will learn how fatigue affects patients’ lives, how to screen and grade fatigue and key evidence-based management approaches. The program is based on the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology (CAPO) guidelines for managing cancer-related fatigue. To help busy clinicians apply the guidelines, the CAPO algorithm was adapted to a traffic-light system. 



Learning Objectives:

  • List the features, prevalence and causes of fatigue.
  • Identify some personal impacts fatigue may have on people with cancer.
  • Recall cancer-related fatigue screening methods.
  • Describe fatigue prevention methods.
  • Assess factors contributing to moderate/severe fatigue.
  • Outline the appropriate actions to take when a patient’s fatigue is graded moderate to severe and identify how to access expert help.

 

What’s included in this course

  • Three online learning modules:
      • Module One: video (10 min)
      • Module Two: interactive eLearning module (10-20 min)
      • Module Three: interactive eLearning module (10-15 min)
  • Three short end-of-module quizzes to help you check your understanding
  • A variety of useful resources and links, including clinical practice resources, fact sheets, screening/assessment algorithms, referral guides, collated links to patient resources and rehab programs, etc.

 

What will I get when I have completed this course? 
Upon completion of the online modules and end-of-module evaluations, learners will obtain a Certificate of Completion as proof of training.
