Introduction to precision cancer medicine

The fundamental idea of precision medicine is to offer each cancer patient a treatment approach that is tailored to the unique biology and genetics of their disease.

This two session course provides an understanding of the concepts that underlie precision cancer medicine and both its promise and limitations.

Elaine will explain how far we are able to use precision medicine by exploring the features of cancer we can target now, and where we might get to in the future. She will also look at when precision medicine fails, and why expectations and realities don’t always align.

The course is delivered by Elaine, but organised by the Newcastle Clinical Skills Academy.

Format: Live, online

Delivery: The course comprises a series of two, three-hour sessions, delivered online via Microsoft Teams

Cost: £150 per person
