I just wanted to share this notice with you from Ovarian Cancer Action in case any of you feel it would be helpful.
The Rarer Cancers Foundation's Patient Empowerment Day
The Rarer Cancers Foundation is holding a patient day for cancer patients, carers and their families on Monday 3rd June at the Holiday Inn London – Bloomsbury from 10am to 3:30pm. This event aims to give patients, carers and their family members a better understanding of the care and support they should expect after a diagnosis with a rare cancer (which includes ovarian cancer). The conference will explore many of the options available to patients such as: referrals, second opinions, specialist cancer centres, clinical trials, radiotherapy, access to drugs and much more. It will also include an exciting session which will focus on how patients can help to campaign for improvements and better outcomes at both a local and national level.
Attendees will also be able to participate in a 1 to 1 session with advocacy experts where they will be able to receive advice and support to help overcome specific barriers. For example during these sessions you can discuss how to access the latest treatments, lack of information and support, access to clinical nurse specialists etc.
If you are interested in attending please email me (Abi Begho Target Ovarian Cancer - Abi@ovarian.org.uk) for more information and a registration form.
Places are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
