LOOKING BEYOND CANCER ‘SURVIVORSHIP’: MEETING THE NEEDS OF A DIVERSE,
Please find enclosed a flyer for above One Day National Conference to be
held on Wednesday 7th July 2010, at Thackray Medical Museum, Leeds.
This national conference, organised by the University of York and chaired
by Professor Mark Johnson, presents policy and practice debates about how
best to meet the needs of cancer ‘survivors’ in a diverse, multi-ethnic
society. Highlights of the morning session include:
• a key note address by Professor Mike Richards on the recent policy
initiatives on cancer survivorship; • experiences of research teams
involved in collaborative work in developing services with and for people
from minority ethnic communities; and • personal experiences of those
directly affected by long term impact of cancer.
The afternoon session will provide an opportunity for more open ended
exchange of ideas through workshops moderated by specialists
We would like to invite interested health and social care professionals,
commissioners, representatives of voluntary and community organisations,
researchers and those personally affected by cancer to attend the day
The aim is to help those with an interest in cancer survivorship to have a
better understanding of how best to support those living with the long term
consequences of cancer within the context of a diverse, multi-cultural
