BGCS Conference 2016

BGCS – 12-13TH May 2016 – ICC Birmingham

-Natalie Percival, President National Forum Gynaecology Oncology Nurses

The ICC Birmingham this year hosted a fantastic BGCS conference attended by a worldwide audience with a passion for gynaecology. The scientific programme was jam packed and each speaker and session provided key learning elements for us to take back to our everyday practice. It was great to see the presentation on endometrial cancer by Emma Crosbie as this really brought home the importance of endometrial cancer which had previously been discussed by Lousie Wan and Pierre-Martin Hirsch at the NFGON conference the day prior to BGCS. It was exciting for me to hear Professor Iain McNeish’s talk on BRCA and his support for the role of the clinical nurse specialist, which I am sure you all know, is a topic that I am passionate about.

The exhibition stands and poster viewing areas were busy with delegates and industry and provided excellent points for discussion with other members of the conference. I was excited to see that our NFGON member Philppa Lloyd won 3rd prize for her poster presentation on Learning Disabilities and Gynaecological Cancer: Recommendations for Accessing Care and Treatment. This was an NFGON funded bursary for Philippa and highlights the important work that the nursing community provide to the large medical conferences.

The meeting also provided NFGON committee with an opportunity to discuss our next conference alongside the BGCS in Glasgow in 2017 and early talks were had about the integration of the NFGON conference and the BGCS conference to bring you the best possible agenda.

Tracie Miles and I are also on the scientific committee for BGSC 2018 which will be hosted in London. If there is anything you want to present or any specific agenda items you feel are paramount for the programme, then please do get in touch. As always there will be nursing bursaries available.

NFGON Conference Report

Tracie Miles 1Congratulations to Nat for bringing the committee together with massive support from Catherine Spencer CNS in Birmingham to produce sell-out conference programme!

We enjoyed a multi-disciplinary mix of speakers, with Maureen Spinetto from the RCN starting the day bringing us up to date with NMC revalidation, an very welcome talk, busting some of the myths around the process, encouraging not yet in gear to get on with it (yes, myself included!).

“Team North” was well represented with talks on obesity in womb cancer from Dr Pierre Martin- Hirsch, a great scene setter for Dr Louise Tan to tell us about the important research priorities the Womb Cancer Alliance have identified. Prof Kinta Beaver continued the research theme entertaining us with “bench to bedside theories”. Surviving treatment, the concept of a specialist nurse team was brought to us from Hull by Sarah Guest with Lynn Holmes from Hull bringing us useful tips on surviving side effects from PARP inhibition.

From the South we heard about complementary survivorship and treatment support from Nicky Bancroft based at Penny Brohn in Bristol, a celebrated concept of care for many of our patients.

And finally from Nat and Tracie an update on BRCA testing, where we are now; moving on, but still it seems a long way to go!

Your feedback was very positive, we look forward to seeing you all again next year. Please do let any one of the committee know if you have a topic/talk/poster or anything else you would like to contribute to next year’s conference in Glasgow.
