Firstly, we would like to thank you for your patience and ongoing support during these unsettling times regarding your registration of the 2020 UK Oncology Forum.
With the current Covid-19 situation and large gatherings, we have decided to host the 2020 UK Oncology Forum in a virtual setting. We hope you agree that this is the right decision.
We are delighted with the platform that we have chosen and feel that it is user friendly, safe and with the added bonus of providing an interactive and excellent networking platform.
We have adapted the 2020 programme to include important discussion around the Covid-19 crisis and its impact on cancer treatments and services across the UK. The 2020 Question Time Session, chaired by Professor Daniel Hochhauser will be completely dedicated to Covid-19 and Cancer. More details to follow. We encourage you to submit your questions to Athena around the issues, concerns and all observations and questions will be addressed in this session. We are also working hard to secure a Covid-19 expert to give the meeting a dynamic ending. More details to follow.
We have worked hard to secure some of the top cancer experts from across the UK and Europe for all of the tumour clinical sessions. In addition to ASCO highlights we will also include important updates from ESMO (the Forum takes place the week after Virtual ESMO.) The meeting will be CME accredited. With this in mind and to give this first class oncology meeting the respect that it deserves, we are urging all of our delegates to apply for study leave and to join the meeting virtually for the duration of the course. Some Trusts also have stringent “firewalls” that make logging in to Virtual Meetings difficult and in some cases, impossible.
