There will be three million people living with and beyond cancer in England by 2030. People affected by cancer face a number of challenges following primary treatment and can feel “lost” during transition from patient to survivor. Many struggle with consequences of cancer treatment that could be either avoided or better managed (i.e. fatigue, cognitive functioning, fear of recurrence and mental health problems).
According to the Department of Health, every year over 250,000 people in England are diagnosed with cancer. For those diagnosed, survival rates are increasing, but currently England’s are still worse than for comparably wealthy countries.
The way that patients have been followed up after primary treatment does not address their needs, or have a significant impact on the detection of recurrence. With the growing number of patients this approach is also unsustainable for most NHS trusts.
Having said that, the National Cancer Survivorship Initiative (NCSI) has suggested a five-step framework to improve survivorship outcomes, in which empowering patients to ‘take control’ and self-manage their situation is a significant element. Switching routine face-to-face interactions to more convenient, low cost alternatives, using innovative digital health technologies is seen to be a solution which could be scaled up for the benefit of people and clinician.
Delegates who will have an interest in this event will include consultants, cancer nurses, oncology leads, heads of cancer services, chief executives, chief information officers (CIOs), chief technology officers, heads of assistive technology, heads of business intelligence, heads of commissioning, heads of data security, heads of digital inclusion, heads of IM&T, heads of information governance, heads of information security, heads of IT infrastructure, heads of technology and innovation, health and wellbeing board members, healthcare service managers, information governance leads, IT directors, heads of telehealth and telecare, technology directors, heads of digital, commissioning directors, heads of innovation and development clinical directors, lecturers and research officers and will be drawn from will be drawn from central government, local government, the NHS, CCGS and the health, voluntary and private sectors.
