Skills Enhancement grants provide successful applicants up to $3,000 to enroll in short-term certification/re-certification courses, professional development courses or an internship, with the goal of enhancing current skills or acquiring new skills that have relevance to cancer care and are in line with the priorities of the RCN. Courses can be independent offerings or provided within the confines of a conference. In the case of the latter, however, registration for the conference itself will not be included in the funding.
The Skills Enhancement Program will consider applications from a broad range of health care professionals who are involved in cancer care at any point throughout the disease trajectory. These include nurses, medical physicists, technologists, social workers, pharmacists, dietitians, therapists, etc. Applicants must be an employee of one of the partner hospitals of the RCN: McGill University Health Centre, Jewish General Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital Center.
