About O'Halloran Consultancy

O’Halloran Consultancy provides cancer training and educational resources developed specifically for individuals and teams working within cancer related environments.

Fighting cancer through knowledge...

We were established in 2002 by cancer academic David O’Halloran who recognised a need to improve the delivery of training to oncology professionals including nurses, researchers and therapists.

Passionate about empowering people through learning.We believe that insight and understanding is fundamental for people working in a cancer related field and we’re passionate about cancer.


Whether you’re a manager looking to strengthen the knowledge-base on your team, or an individual working in a cancer related role looking to broaden your understanding, we’ll provide the learning tools you need in a safe, stimulating and convenient environment.

Why is cancer education so vital?

Put simply, the more we all know, the better we can work together.

From gaining rudimentary clinical knowledge to understanding complex oncological terminology - improved cancer education promotes better team cohesion, raises individual confidence around the field and, ultimately, helps everyone play a greater role in the fight against cancer.
