Shining a light on cancer treatment and research

The latest in cancer treatment, research and patient care took centre stage at the latest instalment of Northern Lights showcase event.

The event series has been developed to shine a light on outstanding research and innovation across the district.

Staff from across the Cancer Centre came together to showcase their work, with presentations on topics from clinical redesign, to workplace culture, palliative care; as well as artificial intelligence.

However, it was patient representative Tanya Beach who fittingly got proceedings underway, detailing her cancer journey to date.

Director of Cancer Services Professor Alexander Engel outlined the day, which featured presentations from Cancer Centre Nurse Manager Rowena Broadbent, Clinical Nurse Consultant Stephanie Smith, Drs Fiona Robinson, Anthony Jeffrey, Malinda Itchins, Jeremy Booth, Anthoulla Mohamudally and David Chan and Professor Dale Bailey.

All up, more than 80 staff and patients attended, with many more tuning into the showcase via live stream.

Three video were shown at the Cance Showcase covering rapid planning of radiotherapy and its benefits to patients and clinicians, the approach taken by our head and neck multidisciplinary team and an introduction to the specialised haematology unit. See the videos below:
