  • Cancer prevention through screening: Explanation and discussion of the national cancer screening programmes.

All sessions include recognising possible signs and symptoms of cancer, and information on national screening programmes, as relevant to the topic, therefore there will be some overlap of information across different workshops.

Information is delivered via Zoom using engaging activities in a relaxed, informal atmosphere with plenty of opportunity for discussion.

Sessions last for approximately 1 hour (up to 1.5 hours if discussion requires).
