“More people are now surviving cancer. World-class cancer care is not just about ensuring people live longer, it’s also about ensuring they live as well as possible. To better understand, and respond to, the long term impact of cancer on people’s lives, we must measure the quality of their survival. We want to measure not just the clinical impact and how long people live once treatment has successfully taken place, but how well they are living. This means looking at long term impact on finances, the ability to maintain social networks and psychological wellbeing.” NHS England

“The NHS is making very significant progress in cancer care, improving survival and quality of life for all those affected by cancer” Cally Palmer, National Director for Cancer at NHS England December 2017

“While we increase the numbers of people surviving cancer, we must make sure the quality of their lives following cancer is as good as it can be….The world-leading work we are undertaking to develop a long-term quality-of-life metric will be piloted in five areas ... For the first time, this will allow us to assess the quality of survival alongside survival rates, so that we can identify where additional support is needed.” Cally Palmer CBE National Cancer Director & Chris Harrison National Clinical Director for Cancer, NHS England

“Cancer survival rates are at a record high, with latest data showing an estimated 7,000 more people surviving cancer after NHS treatment compared with three years previous. One of our key ambitions is to put cancer patient experience front and centre. Everyone is unique, with different views and priorities, so it’s vital that they receive personalized support.”  Professor Chris Harrison National Clinical Director for Cancer, NHS England

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

100% of delegates at the last conference on this subject would recommend the event to a colleague
