There is a need for up-to-date cancer education for cancer care trainees and those in practice due to the expected growth of cancer cases and cancer survivors by 2030, coupled with the fast pace of biomedical advances and the need for practitioners to stay abreast of current evidence. Cancer 360 was developed to support lifelong learning and to foster a spirit of interprofessionalism among cancer professionals through exposure to topics that span the multiple dimensions of cancer care.
