We will be reviewing if GP's have a role in prevention, and what that might look like.  Do e-cigarettes have a role?  We will look at how we can practice safely, without extending the working day. There also new treatments for cancer – what do GP's need to know about them?  We hope that by the end of the day you will feel more confident in prevention, early diagnosis, and understand what new treatments mean for both patients and their GP's and other clinical colleagues.
