Hospice and partners to host conference sharing latest updates in oncology

Health professionals who support people with cancer are invited to get up to date with the latest treatments and initiatives affecting their patients at a unique oncology conference hosted by a Lancashire hospice.

St Catherine’s Hospice near Preston is working with Rosemere Cancer Foundation and Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTHTR) to present the Third National Oncology Update on Thursday 28 June – Friday 29 June 2018.

This year – building on the previous update in 2014 and the first in 2008 – the scope of the event has widened, and is aimed at a variety of health care professionals including doctors, clinical nurse specialists, GPs and district nurses.

Highlights of the programme include sessions on new treatments such as immunotherapy, and the conference keynote speech about Enhanced Supportive Care, as well as sessions about some of the more common cancers health professionals might come into contact with through their patients.

Dr Andrew Fletcher, medical director at St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “This two-day conference is set to cover a vast amount of content, showcasing the expertise of colleagues at the forefront of oncology in the North West. It is a unique opportunity for professionals outside of a cancer specialism to gain a detailed and up-to-date understanding of the latest developments in the field.”

Guildford Advanced Courses

The aim of this 2-day advanced course is to provide delegates with an up-to-date, evidence-based review of the management of pain and other common symptoms. The topics have been chosen because of their impact on the patients’ quality of life, and the lecturers chosen because of their knowledge of the subject matter. The lectures will be supplemented with relevant reading materials, including slide presentations, reprints of articles, and reference / further reading lists.

The course has been developed to address the educational needs of CNSs in Palliative Care, StRs in Palliative Medicine (particularly those about to undertake the SCE in Palliative Medicine), and Consultants in Palliative Medicine. The course organizers are Dr Andrew Davies (Consultant in Palliative Medicine, Guildford), and Dr Andrew Dickman (Consultant Pharmacist, Liverpool).
