ADDRI is delighted to announce the launch of our Specialist Mesothelioma Learning Module. The first of its kind in Australia, this rapid eLearning resource will build awareness and understanding in nurses and allied health professionals about the various types of Mesothelioma; how it presents and how to care for patients through the cycle of the disease.
At ADDRI, we have long been aware of the vital role that nurses play in diagnosing and caring for patients with mesothelioma, as well as providing crucial support to them generally and their families. However, there has been little education available specifically for nurses on this disease. Supported by a successful grant via the Dust Diseases Board (DDB), ADDRI has spent the last few months consulting and developing this comprehensive one-stop resource tool and testing it amongst our cohorts.
Designed as a 30-minute module, the participant will follow the chronological timeline from pre-diagnosis, diagnosis, treatment, care – to end of life. Having supported mesothelioma patients and their families, we know first-hand how crucial the nurse is – it is this group who can determine good experiences over bad.
The Mesothelioma Learning Module is now available to access here. We’d very much appreciate your assistance in sharing this valuable resource with your networks to ensure its reach and impact extend far and wide.
For any enquiries or further information, please contact Kate Butler, Nurse Education and Resourcing Project Officer via Email or Phone on 02 9767 9855. Kate is available to run on-site training programs with nurses and allied health professionals.
Thank you for your continued support of our mission to enhance specialist mesothelioma care through comprehensive education.
