The Health Education Unit seeks to educate and inform patients, their family and friends on cancer and the treatment process. The Unit has a range of materials, including audio-visuals, booklets, leaflets, posters and lectures to help others to understand the facts about cancer. The information is freely available to anyone. The members of the Health Education Unit are more than happy to discuss any problems and share their knowledge with visitors.
The Health Education Unit also provides in-service programs for workers at the National Cancer Institute – which is a prior necessity particularly for nurses attending training school.
Information can also be shared with school children, and others from the community, who wish to use the information in their own projects or for their own dissemination.
The Health Education Unit can be found on the 1st floor of the Outpatients Department.
