About this event

  • Date and time Fri 18 Sep 2020 from 6:30pm to 7:50pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Critical Care Medicine

Join top experts to review cases of critically unwell oncology patients, and explore the current research and future challenges in their care.

This webinar, led by intensivists at The Royal Marsden Hospital, will cover an aspect of intensive care medicine that many clinicians will encounter, yet fear, throughout their careers - the presentation and management of the critically ill patient with cancer.

The aim is to introduce healthcare professionals to common and complex features that patients with cancer present to Critical Care, and to explore the future challenges these cases will provide to the Critical Care trainee.

  • Understand common presentations of critically ill patients with Haematological malignancy.
  • Be aware of the clinical outcomes of patients with cancer following critical care admissions.
  • Be aware of some of the upcoming therapies available to treat critically ill patients with cancer.
  • Consider future challenges in the care of such patients.

With lectures and discussions, this session will further cover a spectrum of novel therapies, such as CAR-T, to holistic care-plans instituted at The Royal Marsden.

This event will prove a must for trainees or students at any level interested in Critical Care or Oncology, Consultants wishing to refresh their approach to these patients, and allied health professionals involved in the care of such cases.

A certificate of attendance and CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live.
