Lung cancer nurse specialists Laura Hall, Emma Barber, Sharon Spencer and Cancer Care Co-ordinator Jenni Anderson will be among the delegates at this year’s International World Lung Cancer Conference in Barcelona.

They are being sponsored to attend by Rosemere Cancer Foundation, which has contributed £788 towards the cost of travel and accommodation.

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.
