“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

“Over the past 12 months, we have been developing the world’s first cancer quality of life metric…Five Cancer Alliances have started to pilot a new quality of life metric to measure long-term outcomes for patients after cancer treatment… This is a world-leading project and no other comparable health system is embarking on something on this scale. What’s more, patients, in collaboration with academics and health professionals, have played a key role in developing the metric, sharing their views on what it should measure, as well as when and how. Findings from the metric will be used to make sure patients receive better informed, personalised support – which will revolutionise the way we provide this… National roll-out of the metric is expected to start from 2019.“ Achieving World-Class Cancer Outcomes: A Strategy for England 2015-2020, 2017

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 of Life Metric for cancer survivors and learning from the pilots site. The metric is due to be rolled out nationally from 2019. 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
  • Learn from the pilot site experience of the new national quality of life metric for cancer survivors which is due for national roll out in 2019
  • Reflect on the development of your own services including recovery packages, risk stratified follow up and support programmes: Meeting the 2020 national target
  • 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
