Our biennial conference goes from strength to strength and attracts leading healthcare professionals from across the world, including oncologists, haematologists, epidemiologists, research scientists, psychologists, nurse consultants, nurses, social workers and allied health professionals.
If you’re a health professional working with young people with cancer please spread the word about the conference to your colleagues so that we can make it the best Teenage Cancer Trust International Conference ever!
I have attended the Teenage Cancer Trust International conference six times and I really recommend it. It gives you an update on TYA cancer issues, an inspiration in your daily work among TYA cancer patients and opportunity to networking as well as meeting professionals from different countries and professions.
- Maria Olsson, Nurse Consultant in paediatric and youth oncology.
This conference is unmissable for anyone involved in caring for teenagers and young adults (TYA) with cancer as you will hear first-hand from international experts at the very cutting edge of TYA cancer care
- Rachel Hough, Consultant Haematologist, UCLH and Chair of the Teenage and Young Adult Clinical Reference Group
In 2014 we held our very first nursing and allied health professionals’ one day symposium the day before the International Conference. The symposium provides a great opportunity to network with international colleagues working in this unique cancer speciality while discussing topics which are relevant and current.
This year’s topics included the sexual and relationship impact of cancer and its treatment for teenagers and young adults, compassion fatigue and burn-out in staff caring for teenagers and young adults with cancer, and a workshop on building resilience through supervision.
