Training Needs Assessments (TNA)

Training Needs Assessments (TNAs) are tools that have been developed to gain an understanding of knowledge, capability and skills relating to early diagnosis and personalised care for cancer in primary and community care.

Data from the TNAs can then be used to develop structured and targeted training for staff in primary and community care.

Training Needs Assessments – 2020

The 2016 TNAs are currently being updated to reflect changes to early diagnosis and personalised care, notably amendments to the national screening programmes and the role social prescribers play in primary care. The results from the updated TNAs will be available later on in the year.

Training Needs Assessments – 2016

TNAs were carried out in 2016, collecting data on the training needs of GPs, primary care nurses and community – based dentists and pharmacists in early diagnosis and personalised care. Over 700 healthcare professionals completed the TNAs, which have provided us with the knowledge and training gaps across London. The results of the 2016 TNAs have been analysed and are available in tableau, please find the links below:
