Whilst we endeavour to provide a 'gold standard' service to all course participants, if you are registering less than 72 hours before the start of the event, you should be aware that some materials may not be readily available on the day and we may contact you with regards to catering arrangements.
The RCGP Cancer Regional Workshop is a one day course packed with all the latest updates, guidelines and useful tips that will help GPs in their daily surgeries.
The course will look at what a GP needs for daily general practice, how to make better early diagnosis, what to look for, what to refer and when. We will look at prevention and the role of the GP.
By the end of the day you will be able to deliver better clinical care and be more confident about your diagnosis.
Key note speech: Cancer—From where to where?
Clinical update: ovarian Cancer
The course is suitable for: Anyone wishing to refresh their knowledge in cancer care. All levels of GP are guaranteed to learn something from the day.
