Laura said: “This is the largest lung cancer conference internationally and therefore a great opportunity for the Lung Cancer CNS Team to network with global colleagues, share best practice and update knowledge, particularly with recent advances in lung cancer management and treatment.
“We see approximately 300 new lung cancer patients per year. We also offer support to ongoing patients, who are continuing with treatment from previous years. We hope the knowledge and best practice gained from the conference will improve patient experience.”
The conference takes place on 7 to 10 September.
