Working together as a community is what the Summit is all about. Throughout the day it was highlighted on a number of occasions that everyone in the pancreatic cancer community must work together in order to #ChangeTogether. It was therefore fantastic to see the community so well represented, with health professionals, influencers, researchers, patients and family members coming together and sharing inspiring ideas.
Dr Derek Grose is Consultant Clinical Oncologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre. At our upcoming Inspiring Change in Care Summit, Dr Grose will be talking about his research into neoadjuvant therapy.
Via the Pancreatic Cancer UK Support Line we hear about variations in treatment and care on a daily basis. Our nurses are often left frustrated that they can’t definitively say what treatment and care a patient should expect to receive. With today’s launch of the NICE guidelines on pancreatic cancer in England and Wales we will finally see this start to change.
