Elective placements are also welcomed from UK based university nursing and AHP students. Placements range from surgery and critical care to ward based medical admissions and palliative care setting. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy delivery can also be experienced. Radiology and Complimentary Therapy can offer placements to limited numbers of students. Students assigned to placements can regularly observe the patient pathway by following a ‘spoke’ to other departments from their ‘hub’ placement and inter-professional learning is encouraged. There are number of education events which occur within the School of Oncology and active participation is encouraged.
Students and practice educators (mentors) are also supported by University Link Lecturers (ULL) liaising closely with the Practice Education Facilitator and education leads in each placement area.
