NHS Genomic Medicine Service - delivering personalised cancer services in testing times (In association with Bayer)
Thursday 20 May
Thursday 10 June
The long term plan, launched in 2019, set ambitious goals to improve cancer outcomes in England, through earlier diagnosis and referral, and access to effective tests and treatments. The pandemic has had a huge impact on cancer services, which could be felt for years to come.
Meanwhile, in spite of - and in many cases because of - the impact of covid-19, innovations in treatment, diagnosis and ways of delivering services are continuing.
HSJ has launched an HSJ Cancer Virtual Series, to keep you, our community, up to date, connected and supported in maintaining and restoring early diagnosis, referral and treatment levels and getting back on track with improving cancer outcomes.
Surrounding the HSJ Cancer Virtual Forum on 11 March 2021, we will run a series of monthly webinars to share updates and stay connected on key topics.
The health and wellbeing of our attendees, speakers and staff is our top priority at this time. By adopting a virtual event proposition, we are able to continue providing worthwhile interactive content and updates, while staying safe at home and precluding the need for travel.
What to expect
• Free access to high-level strategic content, available to healthcare professionals across the system
• Live video panel discussions, with speakers dialled in remotely, each followed with a live Q&A
• Focused workshop sessions, in video chat rooms, with limited group sizes to enable meaningful conversations
• Access to on-demand content, such as additional pre-recorded sessions and other resources, and 30 days’ post- event platform access to view recordings of live sessions, in case you were pulled away from watching in real-time!
