Due to the impact COVID-19 has had on large gatherings and events, we had to cancel our two patient conferences in 2020. However, as an alternative, we arranged for some of the informative speakers to come to you!

Upcoming webinars

Thursday 29th April - 1-2pm (via Zoom)

Managing the fear of recurrence - Carol Hughes, Macmillan Counsellor from Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham

We know that when treatment for primary bone cancer finishes, feelings of anxiety do not suddenly end but take on a different meaning – particularly around the fear of recurrence.

Once treatment has finished, a patient will be followed up with hospital appointments and scans. ‘Scanxiety’ is a term used to describe the sense of worry around the time of these check-ups which a lot of people feel. To help put these fears in perspective and to talk about ways to manage these emotions, Carol Hughes, Macmillan Counsellor will be joining us for an hour-long webinar.

Armed with practical ways of managing the uncomfortable feelings that can manifest when approaching hospital appointments and life after cancer treatment, Carol will be sharing helpful coping mechanisms and shedding light on how to calm the mind and body when it is at its most tense.

To sign up, please fill in the form at the bottom of this page and the joining details will be sent to you ahead of the webinar.
