The National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) has recently opened registration for a joint Living With and Beyond Cancer (LWBC) event with the NHS Cancer Programme.

The event is part of NCRI’s ongoing work to translate the recently launched UK top LWBC research priorities (developed by cancer patients, carers, health and social care professionals) into patient benefit.

Aimed at researchers and professionals undertaking or looking to undertake research in LWBC, the event will include plenary talks, workshop sessions and opportunities to network with funding bodies.

This event will provide delegates working in or looking to work in the LWBC research field with:

Day One
An opportunity to shape their LWBC research ideas in line with the research priorities set out by patients, carers and health care professionals
An opportunity to network with like-minded colleagues and explore potential collaborations
Help/advice from the NCRI, funders and peers on developing ambitious and successful LWBC research proposals, to address the NCRI LWBC research priorities

Day Two
This event will provide delegates across Alliances the opportunity to share with and learn from each other examples of best practice and local learning for personalising care and support for people living with and beyond cancer.
