Law and Cancer Events

Clinical Network in partnership with the McCabe Centre for Law and Cancer ran two events during Law Week in May.

Law and cancer: how the law impacts on cancer and the responsibilities of cancer clinicians - for clinicians, health professionals and the legal sector. A lively multi-disciplinary medical and legal panel discussed the complexities related to the legal frameworks impacting on cancer care.

Discussing death and dying: advance care planning - this event provided a welcoming space in which cancer patients, their carers and health professionals could gain a better understanding of how advance care planning can support better decision-making at the end of life.
