It’s World Leukaemia Day today.

Are you confident in spotting the early signs of Leukaemia?

Why not brush up on your knowledge and complete our free online Acute Leukaemia – Early Diagnosis and Chronic Leukaemia – Early Diagnosis courses created in collaboration with Leukaemia Care?

Acute leukaemia can progress rapidly, usually requiring immediate treatment. The two most common types of acute leukaemia are acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), most often diagnosed in older people, and acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) most often diagnosed in younger people.

Both chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) are often picked up incidentally in primary care. This is because presentation of these diseases can be gradual, with most patients with CLL diagnosed after undergoing a routine blood test.

Our courses will support you to:

  • Increase your awareness of the symptoms and diagnosis of acute and chronic leukaemia
  • Understand  the different presentations, referral and management of acute and chronic leukaemia
  • Confidently assess the need for urgent referrals in accordance with the NICE NG12 guidelines
  • Appropriately safety net patients
  • Increase your confidence in dealing with angry patients
