Cancer Survivorship Summit: Improving Outcomes for People Living with and Beyond Cancer

Monday 7 Oct 2019

De Vere West One Conference Centre, London

Follow the conference on Twitter #cancersurvivorship

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 National Quality of Life Metric for cancer survivors and learning from the pilots 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.

“Cancer survival is the highest it’s ever been and thousands more people now survive cancer every year. For patients diagnosed in 2015, one year survival was 72% – over 11 percentage points higher than in 2000.”

“By 2030 four million people in the UK will be living with the long-term consequences of cancer”

The National Cancer Research Institute 2019

“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.”
