NHS England and Genomics England in partnership with Macmillan and Cancer Research UK are hosting four regional events this spring, to look at what’s needed to embed genomic medicine into routine cancer care.
Called ‘Personalising Cancer Care with Genomic Medicine’, the workshops are aimed at the cancer community, including clinicians and patients, and will share the transformations that the 100,000 Genomes Project have achieved and look at the next steps for genomic medicine and the more personalised diagnosis and treatment it offers for cancer patients.
During each event , participants will:
- Explore what we’ve learned so far from the 100,000 Genomes Project
- Look at how many cancer patients in the region could benefit from genomic medicine and what it would take to achieve this
- Align the goals for genomic medicine with national goals for cancer care
- In one day reach a stage of analysis and action planning that would normally take three or four months using the usual meetings and consultation approach (also known as an Accelerated Design Event).
The events are open to all patients, clinicians and key partners who are passionate about improving care in cancer. Click on the links below for more information on the events taking place in:
