Introduction

The SIOP PODC Education Working Group actively promotes the education and training of all health care providers and ancillary staff from resource-limited settings that participate in the care of children with cancer.

We work to:

  • Promote the education and training of all health care providers and ancillary staff from resource-limited settings that participate in the care of children with cancer.
  • Facilitate connection of provider to available opportunities rather than creating opportunities
  • Liaise with other SIOP PODC WGs to foster collaboration especially in regards to the specific educational initiatives regarding patients, parents, nurses and other ancillary staff.

Activities

  • Working with other SIOP PODC working groups to host educational materials on the Training Centre site
  • Developing a plan to redesign the Training Centre site to make it more accessible and navigable for the user
  • Working on increasing awareness of the site through social media
  • Expanding the “Find and Expert” program
