around cancer


Virtual Conference

Thursday 5th & Friday 6th Nov 2020



Welcome to the “Gathering around Cancer” 2020. This year, due to the prevailing Covid-19 public health restrictions, our annual meeting will be delivered on a virtual platform and be broadcast live from Dublin on the 5th & 6th November.

In this, the eighth iteration of the meeting, our goal of gathering the Irish oncology diaspora and their mentors and friends, to learn from each other and to share research ideas, has never been as relevant. Gathering together while standing apart.

As in previous years, we aim to focus on the topics that change the way we approach the management of cancer, with a focus on clinical updates, amending care pathways during this pandemic, while still fostering research collaborations. We have responded to feedback regarding topics and areas of interest to you, and we will be asking for feedback during and after this year’s event. In particular, in areas of speciality nursing, and the allied medical professions, it would be very useful to tell us about the topics you would like discussed and the speakers whom you would like to address the meeting in the future.

12 CPD credits have been awarded for this meeting by the RCPI.

Thank you for taking time from your busy lives to reconnect with us.

We extend a warm Gathering welcome and hope you have an enjoyable meeting.
