A New Strategy for Cancer Services
Improving Care, Choice and Outcomes

Central London
Tuesday 17th January 2017

Event Details  Website  Register to Attend

With someone in England being told they have cancer every two minutes, and with half of people born since 1960 being diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetime, cancer services are under ever increasing pressure to deliver better services and outcomes. Despite the fact that more than half of people receiving a cancer diagnosis will now live ten years or more, something which suggests significant improvements, there remain definite barriers to be overcome.

In a recent report, the Independent Cancer Taskforce estimated that 30,000 lives can be saved each year by 2020 through earlier diagnosis and better treatment and care.

The report provided six strategic priorities to transform cancer services: spearhead a radical upgrade in prevention and public health;drive a national ambition to achieve earlier diagnosis; establish patient experience on par with clinical effectiveness and safety; transform our approach to support people living with and beyond cancer; make the necessary investments required to deliver a modern, high-quality service and ensure commissioning, provision and accountability processes are fit-for-purpose.

As part of the next steps in taking the strategy forward, Cancer Alliances, led by the Royal Marsden, the Christie, and University College London Hospitals, will be established in September this year. These Alliances will “test models that introduce more formal accountability for whole-pathway and whole population service planning and provision.” Alongside the creation of an integrated cancer dashboard designed to bring together data from across patient pathways into one, simple-to-use portal, these developments mark the next phase of implementation of this strategy.

Almost eighteen months on from the launch of Achieving World-Class Cancer Outcomes: A Strategy for England 2015-2020 and as implementation begins in earnest, this timely symposium offers an invaluable opportunity for NHS practitioners, local authorities, health visitors, voluntary organisations and other key stakeholders to assess the progress made in transforming cancer services to improve survival rates, match the highest standards in Europe and examine how to eradicate inequality in cancer care.

Delegates will:

  • Assess current progress on implementation of the National Strategy and examine its impact to date
  • Gain insights from Cancer Alliances and vanguard sites into the main issues associated with implementation of the strategy
  • Understand how to utilise information and digital technologies to improve patient care
  • Develop strategies to reduce variability of cancer services across the country
  • Hear from experts on the issues and challenges facing cancer services and share best practice with colleagues on improving service delivery and outcomes
  • Examine ways to work in partnership with organisations across the NHS, local and central government to deliver better outcomes
  • Debate how health professionals can be better supported and patients be more empowered to improve safety, quality and choice
  • Look towards the future in considering the next steps for cancer services across England

I am pleased to advise you that we offer a 20% early registration discount off the standard delegate rates for all bookings received by 9th December 2016. For further details about the symposium, please refer to the enclosed event brochure.

International Continence Society (ICS) 2017, Florence, Italy: “Leading Continence Research and Education”


International Continence Society (ICS) 2017, Florence, Italy
“Leading Continence Research and Education”
12th-15th September 2017

Call for abstracts 01 March – 01 April 2017

After 14 years the ICS annual meeting is returning to Italy, and once again the ICS will be in Florence!

We are excited to host the most renowned international experts in the research and the treatment of pelvic organs and pelvic floor dysfunctions, with particular regard to incontinence. The meeting is multidisciplinary, bringing together all the professionals working in the field: nurses, midwives, urologists, gynaecologists, neurologists, physiotherapists, and basic scientists.

The 2017 Scientific Committee is planning sessions on the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of incontinence and other dysfunctions of the pelvic organs and of the pelvic floor. Rehabilitation, medical and surgical treatments will be discussed as well as basic and translational research. The role of new technologies will also be explored. Specialised nursing sessions are also prepared.

The convention centre, Fortezza da Basso, has been recently renovated and is now one of the most modern and comfortable congress venues in Italy. The Fortezza is located within walking distance from the heart of the beautiful art city of Florence where you can lose yourself in the ancient Florentine streets full of arts, handicrafts, fashion and wonderful local cuisine! Take a trip among the colour and flavours of Italian history and tradition. The Mediterranean and Tuscan atmosphere will accompany the discovery of such unexpected beauties that only a city such as Florence can offer.

Florence has always been the centre of cultural exchanges; we believe it is the perfect city to host the ICS meeting!

We look forward to meeting you in Florence in September 2017!
