Cancer in Primary Care: A Toolkit


The Cancer in Primary Care project is an education resource supporting GPs with appropriate referral of patients with suspicious symptoms of cancer.

This free resource, produced in collaboration with the North West London Cancer Network Patient group, the London GP Deanery and Macmillan, provides accreditation to your continuing professional education.

Including 16 videos and an accompanying workbook, the tool covers a number of training outcomes that focus on reflective communication skills.

The resource can be accessed through Macmillan’s learn-zone website. Simply visit the link below, accessing the ‘health and social care’ section then click on ‘toolkits and packs’:

Following this, you can access the videos. There are four simulated GP consultations, that introduce four cancer areas of, bowel, breast, headache (brain tumours) and prostate cancers; with each case presenting a typical consultation, scripted to demonstrate different aspects of cancer diagnosis and care.

12 further videos show patients reflecting on their experiences of their referral. These experiences, both positive and negative, can be used to generate discussion around the initial diagnosis, referral and support of patients with symptoms suggestive of cancer.

The videos are also available as DVD’s from Daniel Callanan at the Cancer Network.

If you’re interested in taking part in the next Cancer Network project, a GP patient information pilot, please contact Avril Vanderloo
