I have attended an RM Partners event in the past, can I still sign up?

YES! Any restrictions on prior attendance have been lifted. You can sign up for the programme and get full access to all the resources until November 2023 - as long as you WORK in a NW or SW London practice.

How many courses should I attend to complete the programme?

The programme is composed of two separate half day online courses and you will be deemed to have completed it when you have attended both courses (whether live or on demand):

First course - Cancer: Earlier diagnosis
You have a choice of two different courses depending on your role 

Second course - Cancer: Beyond the tick box
Everyone can attend the same course.

Once you have completed both courses you might be given the opportunity to attend a face to face ‘Take Action Workshop’ for those who want to truly champion cancer care in their practice (more details will follow once you have completed the programme).

I can’t join any of the live dates, can I watch on demand?

Yes, simply sign up to the programme, log back into your account and click on the watch now button whenever you are ready. The Cancer - Earlier Diagnosis modules are available on demand right now, The Cancer – Beyond the tick box module will be available after the first live date on 20th January 2022.

How do I select which live event I intent on joining? The system does not let me.

You don't need to book onto a specific event (or even tell us which one you are planning to join).

Being subscribed to the programme, you are eligible to join any of them. On the date of the event you want to join, log into your My Red Whale account and click on the 'Watch now' button. You will then have access to the live event on that day.

Why do you have two different Cancer: earlier diagnosis courses and which one should I attend?

We have created two different Cancer: Earlier Diagnosis courses because we want to cater for the different educational needs of the multi-professional primary care team. The course you attend will depend on your job role. 

For the purposes of cancer education, we believe that the clinical and social support primary care team can be split into two groups:
 

1. Clinicians who see undifferentiated patient population and have a key diagnostic role e.g. GPs, ANPs, Physician Associates, Paramedics, Advanced Practitioners. These colleagues should attend the Cancer: Earlier diagnosis in the consulting room course.
 

2. Clinicians/social support workers who work predominantly with people living with long term conditions (including cancer) and need skills to opportunistically spot red flags and seek further assessment e.g. primary care GPNs, health care assistants, clinical pharmacists, social prescribing link workers, mental health practitioners, health and wellbeing coaches, occupational and physiotherapists, dieticians and podiatrists. These colleagues should attend the Cancer: Earlier diagnosis in LTC and the treatment room course.
