Staff involved in the administration of systemic anti-cancer therapy (SACT) must demonstrate knowledge and skills in accordance with the NHS Education for Scotland Education and Training Framework (NES, 2013) and associated SACT competencies (NES, 2014). A challenge exists in educating staff to ensure best practice in SACT administration whilst balancing demands for time away from the clinical area and ensuring staff achieve competence in a timely manner. This presentation outlines how an educational initiative was developed to ensure practitioners are educated regarding best practice in SACT administration and are able to demonstrate the required knowledge and skills within a shorter timeframe.
