BTOG Conference 2018
Fieldfisher were proud to sponsor and attend the 2018 British Thoracic Oncology Group Conference held on 24th to 26th of January 2018. Delegates from all over the UK met at the Clayton Hotel, Dublin to learn more about mesothelioma and lung cancer.
The event brought together lung cancer nurse specialists, consultants, victim support group representatives, pharmaceutical companies and solicitors.
Peter Williams and I were able to sit in and listen to some of the leading names in this field of medical care discuss the most pressing issues, with immunotherapy remaining a hot topic. During one of the seminars, the discussion focused on who should be offered immunotherapy and who may benefit from it. It was also fascinating to see the latest tools used to take tissue samples during the biopsy procedure.
We also held a champagne prize draw at the conference, and this year's lucky winner was a Macmillan Lung Cancer Nurse from Manchester Foundation Trust. Congratulations! We hope you enjoy the champagne.
