Mac Voice is a magazine written by and for Macmillan professionals. But any nurses who provide care for people affected by cancer may find its articles useful.
On the Mac Voice website you can access informative news stories, in-depth features and interviews with professionals who specialise in a range of areas related to cancer care. Much like an online health journal, you can use the article search feature to hone in on subjects that are relevant to your role.
The latest issue of the quarterly magazine includes an interview with Sarah Bunce, a Macmillan Psychosocial Support Worker. In another feature article, Jackie Pooler reflects on 21 years as Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist. And Charles Campion-Smith, a Macmillan GP Advisor, writes in great detail about primary care after cancer treatment. There are many more topics covered on the website, from articles about communication skills to features on subjects such as survivorship, support groups and specific cancer types.
With eleven issues of the magazine online so far, there is a wealth of articles for you to browse, print or share with colleagues. We know from a 2012 evaluation of the print edition that Mac Voice can help with the development of both personal skills and services; 39% of readers said the magazine had helped them change the way they communicate with people living with cancer, while 27% had used Mac Voice to launch new services or resources.
