Event Details

Facilitator - Dr Elaine Vickers

Dr Elaine Vickers, Science Communicated Ltd’s Founder and Principal Trainer, has a Degree in Medical Science, a PhD in Molecular Biology and over ten years experience in communicating science to a wide range of audiences.
She has worked as a science communicator for three of the UK’s leading medical research charities, in-cluding four years in the Science Information team at Cancer Research UK.
When training, Elaine’s energetic and approachable style ensures that delegates not only gain new knowledge and insight, but also have a hunger to learn more.

Learning outcomes

Gain an understanding of breast cancer at a cellular and genetic level and how it differs from other solid tumours

Appreciate how this knowledge is expanding, and appreciate both its potential to benefit people with breast cancer and its limitations

Learn how many types of cancer treatments work, including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, kinase inhibitors, monoclonal antibodies and immunotherapy

Understand treatment resistance and why many drugs fail to benefit women with breast cancer

Gain an insight into what treatments are likely to be licensed for breast cancer in the next 2-3 years and what level of impact we can expect from these treatments.

Target Audience

Research nurses, clinical nurse specialists, chemotherapy/out-patient cancer nurses, pharmacists, clinical trials coordinators and other trials staff, medical writers and medical advisors in the pharmaceutical industry. Elaine presumes that you will have a basic knowledge of cells and DNA but pre-course reading will be sent out to familiarise participants with some of the scientific concepts covered during the day.
