The aim of this study day is to develop the clinician’s knowledge on the different types of childhood cancer and the latest treatment regimens, as well as how to recognise early signs that require investigation for cancer.
This study day consists of distinguished speakers from various institutions with vast clinical knowledge of paediatric oncology. It includes a wide range of topics including common as well as uncommon haematological and oncological malignancies. It also includes palliative and symptom care management and oncological emergencies.
It’s extremely important to have the knowledge and to be able to manage acute oncological emergencies in a DGH, as they can be serious and potentially life-threatening. The session will provide information on how to investigate and manage acute oncological emergencies effectively. In addition, the study day will offer information on GRID & SPIN oncology.
Learning objectives include:
- Learn how to assess, investigate and treat children and young people presenting with cancer
- Learn how to assess and manage acute oncological emergencies
- Update one’s knowledge on the most up-to-date treatment regimens for children and young people with cancer
- Learn how to manage a child or young person undergoing palliative or symptom care management, whilst liaising with a specialist symptom care team
- Understand the impact of childhood cancer on the patient and their family
- Obtain advice and information on working and training within GRID and SPIN paediatric oncology
This day is aimed at Level 2 paediatric trainees with a focus on what to do with a child or young person with cancer from a DGH perspective, which includes oncological emergencies.
