ABOUT UCLH CANCER ACADEMY
The Cancer Academy was launched in late 2016 as a key part of the UCLH Cancer Strategy. The Academy responds to the need for improving patient experience and provides programmes for people affected by cancer. It also responds to an opportunity to support staff in realising their full potential. The Cancer Academy works closely with The University College Hospital (UCH) Education Centre, the UK's most advanced medical and clinical training facility.
ABOUT THE CARDIO-ONCOLOGY IN PRACTICE STUDY DAY
Radcliffe Cardiology is delighted to be an official supporter of the ground-breaking Cardio-Oncology in Practice study day, organised by the University College London Hospitals (UCLH) Cancer Academy in London, UK, on Friday, 28 June 2019, from 09:30 to 16:30 BST.
Cardio-oncology is one of the fastest growing subspecialties in cardiology, covering the management of cardiac problems in cancer patients. Such problems may be pre-existing, develop during and as a restul of cancer treatment or become manifest many years later (late effects).
