This national annual summit takes a practical approach to improving practice and outcomes for those living with and beyond cancer, moving from surviving to thriving. Through national updates and practical case studies the conference aims to support you to deliver on the above priorities outlined by NHS England and develop effective cancer survivorship support and services. There will be an extended focus on implementing the New National Quality Indicator for recovering cancer patients and learning from the early experience at the pilot sites. The conference will also explore how we meet the unmet needs of people living with and beyond cancer, accelerating the roll-out of stratified follow up pathways and the commissioning of holistic packages of support, and ensuring every person with cancer will have access to relevant elements of the Recovery Package.

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues who are working to improve services for cancer survivors
  • Learn from outstanding practice in the development of cancer survivorship programmes
  • Reflect on the perspectives on cancer survivors
  • Get up to date with national developments on cancer survivorship including the new national quality of life metric
  • Reflect on the development of your own services including recovery packages, risk stratified follow up and support programmes
  • Understand how to work with staff to move the focus from surviving to thriving
  • Identify key strategies for improving managing the consequences of cancer treatment
  • Develop your role in meeting the needs of cancer survivors
  • Self assess and expand your skills in developing risk stratified follow up and remote surveillance
  • Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
