Gordon McLean, Strategic Partnership Manager at Macmillan Cancer Support is sharing Macmillan’s person-centred competences with the Scottish Community Link Worker Network as these have helped to support the work of Macmillan’s Improving the Cancer Journey (ICJ) Link Workers.
The Competency Framework is geared more towards the clinical perspective but does have some reference to non-clinical aspects, which the ICJ link workers specialise in. These resources have been developed collaboratively between Macmillan and cancer clinicians and leaders in the NHS. The purpose of the work is to clarify what competences are needed in the workforce to address common unmet needs of people living with cancer.
