The National Lung Cancer Forum for Nurses (NLCFN) annual conference is an event our specialist asbestos disease solicitors look forward to each year.
Taking place this year on 1-2 November at The International Centre, Telford, the conference aims to offer delegates hope for the future by exploring the very latest in lung cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The Forum was launched in 1999 to provide support for specialist lung cancer nurses and healthcare professionals.
It provides an opportunity for its members to recharge their batteries by meeting with like-minded colleagues and learning from clinical experts about the latest lung cancer research and development and new treatments available.
This year, the conference will focus on exploring the challenges and threats facing the nursing profession and offering new ways of working with patients and colleagues in the rapidly changing landscape.
There will also be sessions looking at different types of tumours and their management as well as reviewing optimal lung cancer pathways.
Our asbestos disease solicitors Graeme Chisholm and Andrew Walker will be attending the conference and are looking forward to meeting delegates including specialist lung cancer nurses, doctors and health and social care providers.
Graeme said: “NLCFN is a must-attend event for all professionals working in the lung cancer sector. It is always informative and insightful and provides inspiration to everyone who deals with patients living with chronic diseases such as lung cancer and mesothelioma.
“But it’s not just about looking after patients, the forum encourages healthcare providers to look after themselves and their colleagues, to support each other and help foster and harness their own well-being and personal development, which is so important when working in a highly pressurised environment.”
