Edinburgh 'Hot Topics' Cancer for Primary Care Course

Thursday, June 20, 2019 (All day) to Saturday, June 20, 2020 (All day)

The Cancer for Primary Care Course covers new developments in cancer prevention, screening, early diagnosis, survivorship and consequences of cancer and also end of life and palliative care. The course comes with its own dedicated course book and a full suite of supporting digital learning materials. 

Based around recent developments in the research literature (e.g. What is the evidence for new diagnostic tests such as FIT? What is the latest on aspirin for cancer prevention? etc.), changes to the national screening programme (e.g. the introduction of sigmoidoscopy screening) and national guidelines (e.g. NICE suspected cancer guidance). The course uses clinical cases and scenarios to highlight the learning points. 

The course attracts 6 hours of CPD and is accredited by the RCGP.
