11th March 2016

Education Centre, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester

Course description:

Since the publication of the National Cancer Survivorship Initiative "Visioning" paper 2010, the momentum behind improving services for patients living with and beyond cancer has increased expontentially. The challenge for the next few years is to facilitate implementation of these innovations into mainstream cancer services.

In April 2014, The Christie, Macmillan Cancer Support and University of Salford joined forces to hold a conference discussing and debating the challenges, issues and controversies related to an increasing population of cancer survivors. Join us on 11th March 2016 where we will pick up the discussions at an interactive and discussion filled conference.

Topics to be discussed:
  • Living with an beyond cancer in the 21st century
  • Use of technology to encourage self-managed care
  • Translating projects into mainstream practice
  • Primary care perspectives - innovation in the community
  • Cancer survivorship in the regions
  • Emerging issues and developments

Testimonials from 2014:

"Enjoyable day. Plenty of thought provoking discussion that can be utilised to change practice or at least help it on its way!"

"I particularly liked the discussion and debate approach to the topic - you didn't shy away from the difficult and challenging aspects of LW&BC!"

"This was the first Changing Prospects conference - and hopefully will be followed by others. This was a packed conference bringing together those who have, work with or commission services for those affected by cancer: essentially the right people in the room able to debate and discuss how best to support cancer care needs in the future."

94% of delegates said that they would recommend attending!

Targeted Audience:

The attendees will consist of a diverse mix of clinicians, nurses, allied health professionals, service managers, GPs, commissioners and patient representatives.
