Cancer is a clear or underlying concern in many patients and it is important for GPs to recognise this and act on it.

The role of the GP includes primary prevention of cancer through detection and diagnosis to terminal care. Palliative care, and helping patients to die with dignity, is one of the most fundamental aspects of medicine.

These curriculum resources are regularly updated with relevant articles from our range of healthcare publications. All articles are reviewed by GP advisers. We have set the standard lifetime of an article at two years and will aim to renew all articles within that timeframe. However, some older articles will remain in the listing if our reviewers believe there to be no significant changes to the topic covered.
