The National Cancer Nursing Education (EdCaN) Project provided a way forward for the development of the cancer nursing workforce in Australia through a Framework and a set of capabilities outlining the role expectations of nurses working in cancer control. The EdCaN learning resources help nurses acquire these capabilities.
The Framework and accompanying professional development resources are part of the broader cancer control efforts needed to reduce the burden of cancer in Australia. The EdCaN professional development resources include:
- Competency standards to support practice across the four groups within the Professional development model
- Professional development portfolios
- Competency assessment tools and resources
- Self-directed learning resources
