Identifying Late Effects of Cancer in Primary Care
Coming soon

This is the first in a series of educational offerings for all primary care and community colleagues about the consequences of cancer and its treatments, often termed ‘Late Effects’. This programme has been shaped by feedback from primary care colleagues.

Suitable for all Primary Care Professionals involved in the care of people affected by cancer.

  • The late effects of different types of cancers and treatment
  • The symptoms associated with those late effects, and
  • Which patients may require additional surveillance or treatment as a result of their history of cancer.

Future webinars will focus on how to treat late effects in primary care and when to refer on to other services, and the impact of late effects on patients’ quality of life.

  • Treatment related neuropathy
  • Lymphoedema
  • Sexual Dysfunction following cancer treatment
