Event Overview

One Day Essentials is a series of one-day online conferences – broadcast live – providing expert specialist clinical training and essential information.

Join us on Thursday 25 January 2024 on a one-day interactive online conference covering a covering a range of clinical Cancer care topics.

Primary care is fundamental in achieving good outcomes for cancer patients.

Cancer in primary care is common – 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer sometime in their lifetime. The challenge is to diagnose cancer early and so to improve the life chances of these individuals; with the Long-Term Plan setting an ambitious target of diagnosing 75% of cancers at Stage 1 or 2.

This One Day Essentials Cancer Care conference is a learning event to inform primary care of knowledge and innovations in improving cancer care – for GPs in their everyday clinical practice. The conference will cover a range of topics including the evidence base for urgent referrals and RDCs, safety netting tips and tools, latest advances in cancer testing/detection (including multi-cancer early detection tests) , the evolving role of primary care networks and wider primary care teams. Supporting patients living with and beyond cancer and when to link about cancer recurrence. Finally we will look to the latest hot topics and future of cancer care. The conference will provide GPs with knowledge to impact and improve care of cancer patients in their own practices; as well as inform GPs of changes and innovations that will impact the role of early cancer diagnosis in primary care.

Topics include:

  • Use of urgent suspected cancer referrals and in non-specific presentations rapid diagnostic centres (RDC)
  • Safety netting tips and tools
  • Latest advances in cancer testing and detection including multi-cancer early detection (MCED) tests
  • Primary Care Networks and wider primary care teams – Improving Early Diagnosis of Cancer
