Bon Secours Cork Cancer Centre and the UCC Cancer Trials Group were delighted to bring clinical and research staff to the first ASCO Quality Training Program in Ireland on Friday, 15th September.


The one day workshop, organised by Dr Deirdre O'Mahony with the support of Cancer Research @UCC, took place in Brú Columbanus, Wilton and was open to anyone working in oncology in Ireland. 

ASCO’s Quality Training Program (QTP) is designed to help clinical and research staff to improve the quality of cancer care delivery in their practices. The course elevates medical and non-medical staff members of the care team into higher-functioning quality improvement teams, identifies practice-specific areas for development, and gives you the tools and strategies necessary to make change.

The training uses experience-based learning techniques and provides hands-on learning and the opportunity to immediately translate training into action to improve the quality of cancer care. The Cork workshop focused on the themes of oncology clinical trials and wellbeing. 

This was the first ASCO QTP training event to take place in Ireland.
