Occupational Cancer e-learning module

  • When: October 2018 to October 2019
Complete course at your convenience

In some Australian workplaces, employees are exposed to a diverse range of possible carcinogens at higher concentrations and for longer periods of time than the general public. It is estimated that approximately 5000 cancers each year are caused by workplace exposures.

Cancer Council has developed an e-learning module to increase GP’s awareness of workplace carcinogens and cancers. The module includes sections on occupational cancers in the Australian context, the role of an exposure history, common occupational cancers and the Australian compensation system.

The 60 minute module is accredited with both RACGP and ACRRM.
