Dr Alice Turner, Clinical Scientist and Honorary Consultant Respiratory Physician at the QEH Research Laboratories is working alongside Dr Babu Naidu, Clinical Scientist and Honorary Consultant Thoracic Surgeon at the Heart of England NHS Trust to deliver a one day course to GPs and medical trainees with an interest in lung cancer (although it is suitable for any healthcare professional regularly managing lung cancer patients).
The course will cover diagnosis and management of all stages of disease through a combination of lectures and facilitated discussion of case studies; the latter will be done in small groups if delegate numbers allow.
- How to diagnose lung cancer
- Surgery for lung cancer
- The essentials of chemotherapy and radiotherapy for lung cancer
- Understanding palliative care for lung cancer and dying at home
Further information on this course, along with a course programme and booking details, can be obtained from the Centre for Professional Development website at 'Lung Cancer Study Day'.
