I have just returned from Manchester where with the help of the local ROCC we had a stand at the Nursing in Practice stand at the Bridgewater Hall.
We were inundated with nurses (including those working in general practice as well as students health visitors, district nurses etc) wanting to know about ovarian cancer. Many nurses took part in our quiz to learn about the topic and as usual many were very surprised by the answers. We almost completely ran out of all the BEAT material we took for the event( which was good as it is less to bring back) and we left feeling that it had been a very successful event. Many nurses had no information about ovarian cancer in their work place so it was satisfying to know we had helped spread the word.
We repeat the event again in London in September so if anyone is interested in helping do get in touch with the office
