GatewayC: Highlights of 2021

7th January 2021

It has been another successful year for GatewayC, despite the challenges of the current pandemic.

GatewayC continues to deliver free, high-quality online cancer education. So far, we have supported over 10,000 healthcare professionals across England to improve cancer outcomes, by providing a variety of e-learning resources to support your virtual learning at a time which is convenient for you.

Our programme consists of 23 e-learning courses, our monthly GatewayC Live webinar series, a library of on-demand webinar recordings and a range of microlearning opportunities published on our website every week.

We ran 12 live national webinars covering key issues within cancer care, news and policy, and provided practical tips to help improve patient experience and cancer outcomes.

“Bite-sized webinars enable me to fit it in around clinical work” – Allied health professional, Greater Manchester

“I was very happy with the content and the presentation methods used in this webinar. It was a good length and delivered the information required” – Managerial staff, South West England

You can watch previous webinars on-demand when you log in or register for a GatewayC account.

Microlearning publications

We sent 50+ microlearning emails to healthcare professionals via our mailing list.

Topics included:

Could you spot bowel cancer in younger patients?
PSA request from a patient – What should you consider?
Myeloma and C.R. A. B

Cancer Maps

The Cancer Maps were updated to improve their functionality and visual appearance.

The new features include:

Background and risk factor information about each cancer type
Links to relevant GatewayC courses
Important false-negative figures for key investigations

The maps are designed to make the NICE NG12 guidelines more accessible to healthcare professionals during consultations. Learn more about the Cancer Maps here.
