Event Details


This day is designed for nurses and allied health professionals practicing at an advanced level who come into contact with oncology patients. It will help delegates to recognise and carry out the immediate management of patients presenting with actual or possible oncological emergencies. The acute side effects of some novel biological therapies will also be discussed


The morning comprises sessions taught by consultant physicians and other experts in acute oncology. The clinical stations in the afternoon give delegates the chance to put into practice the skills and knowledge revised earlier in the day.


Intended Audience

The course is aimed at nurses, allied health professionals practicing at an advanced level and GPs who come into contact with acutely unwell oncology patients. This may include professionals working in A&Es, EAUs/MAUs, GP surgeries, as well as Macmillan and district nurses.

Learning Outcomes

Delegates will have a deeper understanding of the processes leading to oncological emergencies, enabling them to recognise problems and to manage this patient group with increased confidence and skill.
