Virtual National Study Sessions 2020

Every October we hold our National Study Day, bringing together health professionals from around the country to learn about the latest developments in pancreatic cancer.

This year, in light of everything going on, we plan to bring everyone together at a variety of virtual sessions across the month.

Join us to explore how we can improve patients’ experience through treatment, dietetic management and emotional support.

Each session is free to attend, you just need to register to book your place(s). However, if you are in a position to make a donation to Pancreatic Cancer UK, we would be very grateful. As a charity, our income has been significantly affected by COVID-19 so any donation you can make would help us in continuing our work.

If you work for a pharmaceutical or product device company, please get in touch with amy@pancreaticcancer.org.uk for more information on how you can attend these sessions.
