Oncology Update© 2024

The 10th annual Oncology Update will be held in 2024.

This virtual study day is for doctors and nurses, general practitioners, and pharmacists caring for people with cancer. Over the last 3 years, 144 people have attended.

Attend in person and further support your learning by reviewing the recordings and PowerPoint slides. Cannot attend on the day? Register and watch the recordings supported by access to a PDF of the slides. Delegates feedback that it is very useful to be able to pause the recordings, look up references and reflect on learning. It supports you to collate learning to share with your team. (See further 2023 feedback below)

We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting and informative day.

Dr Mary Miller and Dr Matt Carey (Chairs)
