Posted on: 05/11/2009

Brain Tumour UK's 9th Annual Patient and Carer Conference 7-8 July 2009

 

Brain Tumour UK has announced the dates and venue for its highly 
regarded annual conference for patients, carers and health 
professionals.
The flagship event is a special opportunity for people affected by 
any type of brain tumour to share in new knowledge, make friends and 
have their questions answered by experts.
This year, the conference is being held at the four-star Abbey Hotel 
and Golf Club, within easy reach of Birmingham, Bristol and London. 
Brain Tumour UK has negotiated very competitive rates, with the 
result that the whole conference ­ with full-board accommodation ­ 
costs just £120 per person. Bursaries are also available for patients 
who are receiving benefits and for students.
As always, there is an impressive range of speakers.  Professor David 
MacDonald, Associate Professor of Neurology at the University of 
Western Ontario, Canada, will provide an exciting perspective on 
research in Canada and the United States.  He’ll be complemented by 
Dr Paul Mulholland from University College London Hospitals, who will 
outline new research in the UK and Europe.
Dr Malcolm Galloway, Consultant Neuro-Pathologist at the Royal Free 
Hospital in London will explain how we tell one tumour type from 
another in order to deliver the right treatment.
Dr David Levy, Consultant Neuro-Oncologist from Weston Park Hospital 
in Sheffield, will outline how the NHS is working to improve outcomes 
for patients.  And Maureen Dowling, Project Co-ordinator for the 
Brain & CNS Survivorship Pathways Project will outline how the NHS is 
working with Brain Tumour UK and others to develop a clear, clinical 
‘pathway’ to ensure that patients are properly cared for in their 
brain tumour journey, from the moment of diagnosis.
Professor Bleddyn Jones from the Institute for Particle Therapy 
Cancer Research will present the exciting new technology that’s 
emerging to treat brain tumours, and debate its future with Professor 
Mike Brada from the Royal Marsden Hospital.
There will also be a host of experts from around the UK to lead 
workshops and address delegate questions and concerns.  Led by 
Professor Garth Cruickshank, they’ll cover everything from treating 
new and recurrent tumours through to caring for young people with 
brain tumours and accessing benefits.
