Cancer Care Conference 2017: Delivering world class care
“For people who are worried they may have cancer, waiting for that all important test result is a nerve-wracking time. We have a duty to make sure this period of uncertainty is as short as possible.” - Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Health
Half of all people born after 1960 will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life. The NHS’s Independent Cancer Taskforce estimates that 30,000 patients could be saved every year by 2020 through a combination of prevention, early diagnosis and improved treatment. The taskforce, set up as part of the NHS Five Year Forward View, believes that this can be achieved through strong local leadership and by setting up “Cancer Alliances” to encourage co-operation across the health service. This joined-up method would facilitate a more patient centred approach to cancer care which accounts for the mental as well as the physical implications of a cancer diagnosis. Technology also has a role to play through the innovative use of health data and the development of digital resources to allow patients to track their treatment and receive test results online.
Join us for the Cancer Care Conference 2017 where experts from across the health sector will discuss the changes needed to guarantee world class care by 2020. Discuss how greater collaboration between health organisations can shift the focus towards the patient, the role of prevention and behavioural influences and how the NHS can achieve the Government’s 28 day diagnosis target.
