Providing support to anyone affected by blood cancer
Our nurses conferences provide a great training and learning opportunity for nurses working within haematology to ask questions about specific diseases and listen to medical professionals.
Please see below for our upcoming nurses conferences.
Our Nurses Conference was a great success, with over 50 people in attendance. The day was accredited with 6 study hours from the RCN (Royal College of Nursing), and saw a range of speakers from medical backgrounds, as well as patient speakers.
Our conference was designed to inform nurses of the everyday issues that may occur in their working life. We aimed to provide nurses with the knowledge necessary to help provide better care for patients who have a blood or lymphatic cancer.
Our Nurses Professional Development Day was very successful. We had over 30 nurses attend with the day accredited by 7 study hours from the RCN (Royal College of Nursing), one more than last year.
The development day was aimed at providing nurses with the knowledge to support patients through the cancer journey, specifically through communication and psychological support.
This event forms part of a series of six educational days scheduled to run over a two year period run by The Christie School of Oncology. The program is set up to cover key diseases, treatments and nursing issues in haematological nursing.
Leukaemia CARE will have a strong presence at this conference. We will be offering information on MDS and MPN's as well as taking orders for our soon to be published patient booklet.

This is the 3rd out of a series of 6 haematology nurses education days. The aims of the day are to educate nurses and other allied health professionals in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). The morning session will cover diagnosis and management, including case studies. The afternoon will focus on the nursing care. Candidates should be working in haematology oncology and have a good basic knowledge.
This is a one day course presented by David O’Halloran. This course will take a brief look at leukaemias and lymphomas. It will start by taking a look at macro and micro anatomy of the circulatory system, and in particular, at how blood cells are formed within the bone marrow. Different types of the blood cells will be explained and related to the similarities and differences between the diseases associated with the circulatory system.
This course describes and explains the unique cellular and genetic features of haematological cancers and covers a diverse range of targeted treatments in development for leukaemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma. New approaches such as epigenetic modifiers and inhibitors of Bcl-2 and B-cell receptor signalling are introduced and the possibility of personalised treatment is discussed.
This conference aims to educate health professionals about lymphoma, including histopathology, current management of subtypes including immunochemotherapy, radiotherapy, stem cell transplantation and novel agents.
This is the 4th out of a series of 6 nursing education days focusing on haematological malignancies. The day aims to educate nurses and other allied health professionals in Myeloma.
The morning session will cover diagnosis, management and treatment of the diseases. Key nursing care will be the focus in the afternoon.
