About this event

  • Date and time Wed 19 Jun 2024 from 8:30am to 5:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Oncology

As acute oncology (AO) reaches its 15th birthday, we are pleased to invite you to a summary of past and current best practice for acute oncology services.

The program does not only focus on different medical subspecialities, such as cardiac and respiratory AO emergencies, but also discusses common acute oncology problems including spinal cord compression, immunotherapy toxicities and end of life care.

With a wide breadth of subjects, and a strong medical slant, the event is unique in content and format. 

By attending, you will:

  • Understand the acute oncology service and appreciate its future direction in further improving care
  • Be able to investigate and manage common oncological emergencies
  • Learn to recognize and understand the management of toxicity-related complications from anti-cancer therapies
  • Appreciate the value of involving the wider MDT in specialist care or end of life care
