Uses 'spaced education' approach. Courses consist entirely of questions and answers. They are sent to you in small amounts (typically 1 or 2 a day) on a regular schedule via email, the Web or RSS. They can be accessed from a desktop browser or a mobile device such as an iPhone or BlackBerry. The program references the
Safe Handling and Waste Management of Antineoplastic Drugs protocol in
which should be used in conjunction with the WorkCover Cytotoxic Drugs and related Waste Guide 2008.
In order to finish the course, you need to retire all eight questions. A question becomes retired after you have correctly answered it twice in a row. If you get a question correct it will be given to you again in 14 days. If you get an answer incorrect it will be repeated after seven days.
