This is an education event with a difference! Bendigo Cancer Centre staff would like to work with general practice, understand issues, enhance best practice care and support optimal patient outcomes. Receive key clinical updates, a centre tour, two-way communication and networking opportunities with cancer clinicians. New initiatives will be launched to further support GPs in their clinical management of patients with cancer. A separate session will be held for practice nurses and advertised separately.
- List the critical suspected cancer ‘red flags’ that GPs must be aware of
- Outline diagnostics to order for ‘red flags’, who to refer to and how to contact an Oncologist for urgent clinical decision-making support or urgent access to services
- Recognise potential toxicity in patients receiving immunotherapy
- Describe when to best utilise radiotherapy for skin cancers
