New health inequalities training has been offered across the region

HEALTHCARE professionals who have contact with cancer patients at any part of the cancer care pathway have been invited to join a new training programme to help address health inequalities that are known to impact people affected by cancer. 

The course helps staff at all levels understand the causes and consequences of health inequalities in cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship, and learn practical strategies to address these in their own settings.

Organised by East of England Cancer Alliance and NHS England, the training includes a blend of webinars and online learning led by an expert provider.

The course is free and open to all colleagues across the East of England with an interest in improving cancer outcomes for all. Participants learn from experts in the field, interact with peers from different backgrounds and perspectives, and apply their knowledge and experience to real-world scenarios.

For more information go to: Home (  The training programme was also mentioned on our news pages here with insight from one of our patients who took part.


The training available is run by experts and is aimed at everyone working in the cancer care pathway in the East of England. 


Training covers a number of topic areas such as identity and culture, marginalised communities - such as those living in poverty, and inclusivity in end of life care.

There are a range of teaching resources, with videos, e-learning, webinars, discussion forums, surveys and additional resources.
