Cancer Survivorship & Rehabilitation

19th & 20th January, Leeds

We were delighted to welcome a excellent selection of speakers to this conference on survivorship and rehabilitation. Keynote presentations were given by Ciaran Devane (CEO of Macmillan Cancer support), Claire Foster (Director of the Macmillan Survivorship Research Group, Southampton University), Faith Fibson (London South Bank University), and Maggie Watson (Royal Marsden Hospital, and President of IPOS).

The conference programme included symposia on: Communication and patient experiences; Cancer Survivorship; Screening and Interventions; and an invited symposium on the NCRI Psychosocial Oncology Clinical Studies Group. Two workshops were held after the conference (co-organised by the Cancer Experiences Collaborative): the first on Writing for Publication was faciliated by Maggie Watson and Catherine Walshe; and the second on Successful Grant Applications was facilitated by Claire Foster and Karen Groot.

Two conference reviews are included in Issue 1 of our 2012 Newsletter.
