The late medical effects of cancer treatments

When and where

Past event

The late medical effects of cancer treatments

This 1-day medical cancer conference will focus on the 'medical' late effects of cancer treatments and provide a forum to discuss best practice.

Data shows that 40–45% of people should expect a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. The number of patients who have survived cancer is also growing and so it is estimated that some 500,000 people are living with the actual and long-term consequences of cancer therapy.

With these statistics and with an ageing population, it is increasingly likely that all physicians will see patients who have survived cancer and are living with the late effects.

Programme highlights

  • scale and nature, and the patient's perspective of the problem
  • the systemic effects of cancer treatment – endocrine, respiratory, cardiac and exercise
  • bone metabolism
  • research in late effects
  • cancer as a chronic disease
  • how to do late effects of cancer treatment care well.

Really good, high quality conference with lots of ideas and thoughts to take back to my colleagues.
