The COSA Cancer Care Coordination Group recently collaborated with CNSA to present this webinar in March 2021 "What really matters? Critical attributes of cancer care coordination in a complex world".

Speakers:
Professor Mei Krishnasamy
Distinguished Professor Patsy Yates

About this session:
This webinar examined the critical skills and attributes of Cancer Care Coordinators, acknowledging their work across multiple systems, with diverse caseloads across a range of environments. Drawing on recent research relating to the characteristics of expert cancer nurses, and the need for advanced assessment skills and principles of emotional intelligence, participants gained an understanding of the evolving attributes required of cancer care coordinators and were challenged to embrace professional and personal development strategies to advance / progress in the role.
