Tackling cancer in 2014

"World cancer report 2014" has raised some very alarming statistics about the future of cancer ~ however, there is still a strong case for optimism. In 2014 survival rates are much better than decades ago, with the key to successful treatment being early diagnosis and treatments.

How will we help tackle this problem? Research remains high on our agenda with the goal of personalised cancer care for patients. Helping people make improved life style choices, and to give advice on seeking early intervention is very important to UCARE and forms part of our strategy in prevention and diagnosis.

This is a window of opportunity for you to help…

Updated clinical guidelines for prostate cancer

Prostate CancerMany of you will have heard or read in the news that The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) have recently updated their guidance on the diagnosis and care of men with prostate cancer.

We welcome the continued review of guidance and the updated evidence basis from which the decisions are made. This report continues to build on the development of standardised approach throughout England to diagnosing and managing men with prostate cancer. Many recommendations remain unchanged and there have been some additions which the clinical teams will need to discuss and implement.

For a detailed look at the guidance see the NICE website.

Raising awareness

Life Drawing is a thriving and important observational art form and drawing the nude human body one of the most challenging artistic disciplines.

We thank, Anthony, who had testicular cancer and is a Life Model and artist Francis O’Neill for letting us use this oil on canvas painting to raise awareness for testicular cancer.
