The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and Cancer Prevention Europe (CPE) have launched the French version of the CPE self-paced online learning programme to mark European Week Against Cancer 2022. CPE has also recently added an evaluation component (available in both English and French), which includes surveys and a quiz, enabling those enrolled in the programme to earn a certificate of completion issued jointly by IARC and CPE.
The CPE online learning programme, originally launched in English in April 2021, will soon also be available in Hungarian, Spanish, and Polish, enabling a wider audience to gain knowledge of primary and secondary prevention of cancer, the European Code Against Cancer 4th edition, and the latest evidence and myths related to cancer prevention.
This multilingual programme is designed to meet the information needs of cancer prevention promoters and advocates. The programme consists of two sets of free, self-paced, online learning modules:
- The European Code Against Cancer, 4th edition
This certified set of 13 modules includes 12 modules on each of the recommendations within the European Code Against Cancer 4th edition and 1 module on the underlying methodology.
- Latest evidence on cancer prevention, myths, and controversies
This complementary set of 12 modules presents the latest evidence and tackles myths and controversies related to the topics addressed by the European Code Against Cancer, 4th edition.
The learning materials hosted on the CPE Learning Centre have been developed by leading experts in cancer prevention and are aimed at anyone working in or with an interest in cancer prevention and health promotion, such as staff members of cancer leagues, health promoters, cancer prevention advocates, researchers, medical and public health students, and health-care professionals.
All materials are freely available and can be accessed using a computer or a smart mobile telephone.
