Aspirant Cancer Career and Education Development programme
The Aspirant Cancer Career and Education Development programme (ACCEND) will provide transformational reform in the education, training and career pathways for cancer support workers, nurses and AHP’s supporting people affected by cancer.
The ACCEND programme provides guidance on the knowledge, skills and capabilities required by all cancer support workers, nurses and allied health professionals who care for people living with cancer in generalist and specialist cancer services and roles as part of multi-professional teams across the four UK nations.
The ACCEND programme is a cancer career and education development programme that supports aspirant cancer nurses and allied health professionals towards increasing their knowledge, skills and capability. This will increase and improve the supply of the cancer health care professional workforce in the future. It also provides the existing cancer workforce with access to the education and training needed to match the competencies required for their role.
Using a range of learning opportunities, ACCEND provides a definitive career and development pathway for those aspiring to work in cancer care.
ACCEND is underpinned by learning related to the four pillars of professional practice - clinical practice; leadership and management; research/evidence-based practice and quality improvement; and specialist cancer focused education.
