Personalised care is the focus of new e-learning for people with cancer

7 June 2021

People with cancer will benefit from a new e-learning course for the health and care workforce to improve knowledge and understanding of prehabilitation and rehabilitation and support personalized care.

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to develop a personalised approach to care and support that ensures care and support is identified, planned and arranged around individual needs and abilities.  

The Prehabilitation, Rehabilitation and Personalised Care (PRosPer) e-learning programme aims to support the healthcare and wider workforce in developing their skills on providing personalised care via e-learning and face to face sessions.

A range of topics are included in the programme including:


  • Personalised care and support
  • Cancer prehabilitation
  • Cancer rehabilitation and symptom management
  • Service redesign and workforce development

According to Macmillan, the number of people living with cancer is set to rise to 5.3 million by 2040.  Around 70 per cent of people with cancer have other long term conditions to manage alongside cancer and this may impact on their care and support needs.

This first module provides colleagues with an introduction to prehabilitation, rehabilitation and personalised care and support. Further modules about cancer prehabilitation, rehabilitation and service redesign and workforce development will be available later this year.
