Designed as an educational programme to offer an expert opinion on the management of patients with COVID-19 and cancer, this unique webinar will present some practical experiences around the multi-disciplinary management of such patients.

Join us to understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the multi-disciplinary management of patients with cancer, to investigate current evidence surrounding vulnerability of cancer patients to the SARS-Cov-2 infection, and to explore changes in diagnostic and treatment algorithms across malignancies.

This meeting capitalises on the expertise of the OnCovid study investigator, the first multi-centre European study documenting outcomes of patients with both COVID-19 and cancer.

By attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the clinical and pathophysiological basis of COVID-19 infection, with a particular focus on impact on cancer patients
  • Appreciate the clinical and biologic factors that portend to disease severity and adverse outcome in patients with cancer and the virus
  • Implement risk stratification in routine clinical practice and improve the decision making process in the setting of ongoing SARS-Cov-2 viral transmission in the community

A CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit 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.
