Following the previous successes of the RSM global oncology event, we are pleased to announce that the 5th year of this important meeting is going to take place in a webinar format.
This webinar is part of the London Global Cancer Week 2020 - a series coordinated with over 20 different events providing a comprehensive picture of the impact of the rising incidence of cancer in emerging countries.
Join this global movement to address the disparities in cancer care in low and middle income countries, and learn how to address this through collaborative networks. Once again, we bring together healthcare professionals from around the world to share their experiences and increase awareness of topical issues globally faced in oncology.
Participants can expect to understand:
- Innovations through digital and other technology, which will improve cancer control in low and middle income settings
- The global movement to eliminate cervical cancer, which could be the most significant achievement of our generation
- How current research in global oncology is improving cancer outcomes
A CPD certificate with 3 CPD credits will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
