Spring 2023 innovation event
Hear about innovations and projects from across the prostate cancer community.
Our innovation events bring together experts and members of the prostate cancer care community to discuss the latest innovations and projects. You’ll get the chance to ask questions, chat to your peers, and hear about the exciting changes happening in the field of active surveillance. We'll hear from experts, as well as from men who have experience of being on active surveillance.
This event will take place online on Friday 19 May, 12:00 - 1:30pm.
We’ll be joined by two men who’ll be sharing their experiences of active surveillance.
There will be time for Q&A after each of our speakers so you can ask any questions.
Caroline Moore is a Professor of Urology – and the first woman to be made professor of urology in the UK – at University College London. She specialises in MRI for prostate cancer diagnosis, surveillance and treatment.
Caroline will be discussing UCLH’s approach to active surveillance and findings from Movember Active Surveillance research priorities paper.
Vincent Gnanapragasam is a Professor of Urology at the University of Cambridge and an honorary consultant urologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge. Vincent’s work integrates research into clinical practice and is based on the diagnosis and management of early prostate cancer.
Vincent will be discussing Active Surveillance protocols and an approach to stratified follow up.
Do you have an exciting innovation or project to share?
If you'd like to share a project or innovation you've led on, which has improved the prostate cancer pathway for men, get in touch.
We're interested in hearing about projects including (but not limited to):
- Prostate cancer risk awareness campaigns
- Diagnosing prostate cancer earlier, e.g., the faster diagnostic standard, optimal timed pathway for prostate cancer and rapid diagnostics
- Nurse-led triage
- Implementation of mpMRI and LATP biopsy
- Personalised care and supported self-management
