Introduction
The Myeloma UK Myeloma Nurse Learning Programme (MNLP) is an innovative, online learning course developed specifically for haematology and oncology nurses with a particular interest in myeloma.

The aim of the Programme is to provide practical and relevant information about myeloma that will support nurses in delivering optimal care, information and support to myeloma patients and their families. It includes both summative and reflective learning in an interactive environment enhanced through the use of audio-visual tools.

Produced by Myeloma UK, the Programme is updated regularly and reviewed by haematologists and nurse specialists in the field.

It comprises 10 separate learning modules that provide a comprehensive overview of the disease entity including; its pathogenesis; how it is diagnosed and monitored; the symptoms and complications arising from it; treatment and supportive measures, as well as the more holistic aspects of care. It also reflects the continually changing research and policy environment to ensure nurses are always up-to-date.

Assessment
Short self-assessment multiple-choice tests can be found at the end of each module. Users are assessed on their understanding through ten independent exams covering each module. Each exam can be taken after completion of the corresponding module or upon completion of the course. An average score of 40% for the final assessments is required to successfully complete the programme.

 

Accreditation
The Programme is managed, delivered and awarded by Myeloma UK and is accredited by the Royal College of Pathologists. Each module awards 10 CPD points, with completion of the entire learning programme awarding a certificate for 100 CPD points.

A certificate will be issued after completion of the entire programme to support your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and professional revalidation requirements. Individual module certificates can be found in your CPD portfolio.

 

Through the Myeloma Nurse Learning Programme, Myeloma UK looks forward to working with nurses in the UK and across the world in improving the treatment, care and support of myeloma patients.
