A complete program that will help you learn the main tools to provide health care to oncology patients’’

In oncology nursing, as the Spanish Oncology Nursing Society (SEEO) has been advocating for years, the acquisition of knowledge on genetics, cell biology or tumor markers is essential in the construction of a framework on which to base clinical practice. This is one of the aspects that this Postgraduate Certificate aims to address, including advanced histological and biological concepts that will allow the student to understand the mechanisms that cause cancer and the factors involved in its appearance.

After learning about the skills and reality of oncology nursing, the student will become familiar with etiopathogenic theories and the concept of carcinogenesis. They will also learn about the mechanisms of tumor progression, the nomenclature of tumors, as well as their staging, which are essential to guide nursing practice and to know the patients’ situation.

In addition, the risk factors involved in the appearance of cancer and epidemiology will be dealt with extensively, with complete and up-to-date information, as will cancer prevention, as well as the strategies to be implemented at each of its levels. Finally, the assessment of the oncology patient will also be covered, which will allow the student to acquire a comprehensive perspective of the patient, enabling them to provide quality care based on scientific evidence.

The up-to-date contents of this Postgraduate Certificate and its integrative approach will provide a complete vision of all aspects related to Oncology Nursing. The contents will provide a journey through the diverse needs of cancer patients, whose particularities require personalized attention.

Both the design of the program and the didactic material used will facilitate the understanding of concepts, and the realization of practical cases will help to adapt what has been learned to clinical practice.
