Description

Quality of Life in Survivorship - Day One: For Health Professionals


After a very successful conference in Liverpool last year The Head & Neck Cancer Conference moves to Blackpool.

Following last year’s conference we were asked to hold a similar day for health professionals to attend so you could understand from patients prospective the issues they face living with & beyond Head & Neck Cancer and to share ideas and best practice from leading national & international ambassadors in Head & Neck.

This two-day conference will bring together Health Professionals on day one and Patients & Carers on day two.

The conference poses challenging questions around Support, Knowledge and the challenges of ‘Living with & Beyond Head & Neck Cancer’.

Inspired by leading national and international thinkers, the conference will explore how greater passion and understanding can be inspired in the system so that more patients and carers and the people who work with them, make inspired choices, continue learning and aspire to a world class performance.

Head & Neck Survivor from Australia, Health Professional from the USA and leading patients/survivors & health professionals from the UK will all help to make this year’s conference memorable.

Head & Neck Cancer 5year survivorship is currently 79% of all diagnosed patients, this is fantastic news.

Inspired by science and driven by patients you are Health Professionals will look to continue this trend.

World Cancer Patient Ambassador Chris Curtis said "We must not get complacent with the great work being carried out in the UK and always drive to increase the 5year survivorship rate by learning from other Countries and collaborate as patients with other survivors, carers, health professionals, drug companies and stakeholders to share our ideas"

With more patients surviving 5years, this year the conference offers an invaluable opportunity to discuss the issues of retaining ‘Quality of Life plus Living with & Beyond Head & Neck Cancer’ and how the latest services, treatments, technology and drugs can transform Head & Neck Cancer 5year Survivors Quality of Life.
