Course description:
This Master Course aims to provide participants with the necessary skills to develop a comprehensive cancer prevention project plan that, by the end of the course, will be ready for implementation. This interactive course will be designed to assist health professionals from low-, middle-, and high-income countries who are responsible for reducing cancer risks at a population level. The purpose of the course is to equip individuals with the necessary skills to develop and implement a structured project to reduce cancer risks in the community, in order to achieve the maximum impact based on resources available.

A range of learning strategies (web links, podcasts, video clips) and activities will be available in the lead up to the face-to-face workshop that relates to each learning objective. This will be a practical learning process. Each participant will bring an idea for an intervention and will develop their project throughout the course. The aim is for participants to have a fully developed cancer prevention project proposal once the course is completed.

Course objectives: 
After completion of this course participants will be able to:
1. Use available data and research to provide a strong rationale to support the key aspects of their project and justification for their nominated target audience.
2. Identify a range of health promotion frameworks, and learn how to select the right approach and strategies for their project based on their target audience, aims, and budget.
3. Explore and assess a range of intervention strategy options and describe the most effective likely key elements of their prevention project.
4. Summarise how their project links to broader public health policy, and demonstrate critical skills in advocacy that can be applied to their project implementation.
5. Monitor and evaluate their outputs, outcomes, and impacts against their key objectives.
6. Manage project implementation, such as risk mitigation, how to deal with set-backs and how to build relationships with stakeholders. 

Target audience:
This course is designed for anyone involved in the planning and implementation of communication, policy, and public education strategies aimed at changing attitudes and behaviours at a population level related to cancer prevention.
