Introduction

The SIOP Global Health 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. The working group operates under the name of Cancer POINTE and they publish materials, information about training courses here: https://cancerpointe.com and over social media – Twitter: @CancerPOINTE, Facebook: CancerPOINTE and Instagram: @CancerPOINTE

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 Global Health 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 Global Health 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
