25th March 2015

Education Centre, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester

Course description:

Learning will be guided through involvement in real patient scenarios which will identify:
  • Acute problems caused directly by malignant disease.
  • Conditioning caused by systemic anti=cancer treatments.
  • Adverse reactions from radiotherapy treatments.
These scenarios will help delegates to understand how to recognise these conditions caused by systemic anti-cancer treatments, as well as know the correct investigations needed to effectively assess a patient.

Further to this, they will have an increased understanding of the management of these acute conditions in order to help provide greater advice and support to patients presenting in their clinical area

Key Themes:

This study day will allow delegates:
  • A greater understanding of the role and responsibilities of acute oncology teams and services.
  • An opportunity to work through a range of acute oncology clinical presentations using real patient scenarios.
  • To increase their understanding and management of the acute effects of radiotherapy and systemic anti-cancer treatments.
  • Information signposting to practical guidelines, services and protocols.

Pre-course materials:

Delegates will be asked to complete a set of pre-course materials prior to attendance at this event. These materials serve as an introduction to the background of the topics that will be discussed during the day.

Post course learning:

The presentations will be filmed for use as post event e-Learning. Your face will not be filmed, but your voice may be used for educational content. The teaching will be interactive and we urge delegates to ask questions and initiate discussions to maximise their learning from the day.
