The Changing Prospects for Cancer: New models of aftercare for those living with and beyond cancer

Friday 4 April 2014 9.30am - Friday 4 April 2014 6.00pm
Venue: The Lowry, Pier 8, Salford Quays, M50 3AZ
Event Type: Health; Conferences

As the National Cancer Survivorship Initiative (NCSI) vision for cancer survivorship begins to become a reality for patients, professionals and commissioners, this conference will explore some of the fundamental issues and controversies which are beginning to emerge.

Key themes:

  • In the context of the supported self-management framework, what are the key challenges for patients living with and beyond cancer?
  • What can we learn from Primary Care? What specific challenges are faced by community based services?
  • What exactly do we mean by 'patient empowerment'?
  • Would such a service model really deliver the supposed economic, clinical and organisational benefits?
  • Are services ready to embrace change?
  • Is there anything we can learn from other chronic diseases? Or is cancer a special case?
