The Multi-Specialty Challenge of Cancer Care

Remarkable progress has been made in cancer medicine, making cancer a chronic disease rather than a fatal disease for many patients. This has resulted in an increasing burden of cancer treatment complications. During a cancer journey through treatment and beyond, patients are likely to come into contact with a range of professionals from different specialities. With key updates in supportive care and lifestyle considerations, this session is aimed at empowering the audience with top tips in managing this unique type of patients.
