Summer 2022 innovation event

Hear about innovations and projects from across the prostate cancer community.

Overview

On Friday 30 September, 9:15 – 10:45, we’ll be hosting our next online Innovation Event (via Zoom) - focusing on  the ways Cancer Alliances and NHS Trusts are working to achieve best practice with the Faster Diagnosis Standard. 

Our last Innovation Event in May brought together over 70 stakeholders invested in transforming prostate cancer pathways to help tackle inequalities. Since then, we've continued to support Cancer Alliances and individual clinicians delivering innovations and improvements across urology and prostate cancer pathways. Our next event will showcase some of this work, highlighting lessons learned and recommendations for scaling.  

Our Innovation Events are aimed at clinical and non-clinical staff involved in the transformation and delivery of local urology and prostate cancer services. Please do share this event with anyone who may be interested.
