Event Overview

One Day Essentials is a series of one day online conferences – broadcast live – providing expert specialist clinical training and essential information. These conferences are recorded live and the sessions will be available for delegates to access freely for six months from the webinar date.

Join us on Tuesday 30 November 2021 for a one day interactive online conference covering a range of clinical Cancer Care topics.

Primary care is fundamental in achieving the effective management of cancer.

Cancer in primary care is common – 1 in 2 people born after 1960 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 by 2028.

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; as well as reflecting on changes in cancer care that impact the health system that GPs are part of.  The conference will cover a range of topics such as ‘non-specific markers of cancer in primary care’, ‘the role of primary care networks in improving early diagnosis of cancer’ and will cover innovations that will impact the care of our patients such as the new screening blood test that is being piloted in England – the GRAIL project.

Therefore please join us for an event that 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:

  • Non-specific markers of cancer
  • Primary Care Networks – Improving Early Diagnosis of Cancer
  • The Oxford CANSCAN project – A cancer vague symptoms pathway
  • GRAIL – The past, present and future
  • The importance of the faecal immunochemical test (FIT)
  • Dermatological cancers in general practice
