Event Details

Improving cancer diagnosis

The Impact of the Discovery programme

The Discovery programme is composed of a group of the UK's leading researchers into primary care cancer diagnostics. The team has undertaken research which has made a significant contribution to improving cancer diagnosis in the UK. The findings will be presented on June 2nd 2015 at the Royal College of General Practitioners, London.

This event will give an overview of our findings, their impact on health and cancer policy but it will also provide an opportunity for those involved in cancer – patients, doctors, NHS policymakers – to ask us questions and find out more about cancer diagnostics, particularly in relation to primary care.

Diagnosing cancer early is at the forefront of health policy in the UK but it remains a challenge, particularly for the period between the patient experiencing symptoms and the point of diagnosis. Symptoms that are associated with cancer are often caused by non-serious illnesses which either cure themselves or are alleviated by a short course of medication. How do doctors and patients differentiate between serious cancer symptoms and less serious illnesses - the Discovery Programme has addressed this question through a wide range of studies that examine social, clinical and organisational factors that inhibit early diagnosis.  

The event is free to attend but you will need to book a ticket which you can do using the ‘register’ button. Lunch is provided.
