Walk 21km into the night towards a cancer free future

Nurse Ambassador Program

Cancer Council Victoria offers a free Nurse Ambassador Program for practice nurses looking to broaden their scope of practice to include cancer screening and prevention activities across their whole practice, with a focus on under-screened communities.

Program overview

The Nurse Ambassador Program will provide practice nurses with the latest clinical knowledge about the three national cancer screening programs (bowel, breast and cervical) and viral hepatitis, so they can effectively discuss and endorse cancer screening participation and drive cancer screening uptake in their practice. The program will also focus on how to engage and support under-screened communities in cancer screening and achieve health equity for all Australians.

Next program

The next program will run in March/April 2023. Further details will be provided when the planning is finalised.
