What is personalised care? Personalised care focuses on including the patient and making them the centre of their journey, whilst addressing their holistic needs and linking the patient in with other hospital services, healthcare professionals, peer support and community services.

For UGI / HPB CNSs and other Allied Healthcare Professionals working closely with pancreatic cancer patients, in the workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

  • discuss current practice with your colleagues from across the UK
  • establish what is working well and what isn’t working so well
  • define what best practice might look like
  • consider the role of the CNS and wider clinical community in delivering personalised care
  • identify any barriers and potential solutions to address these issues
