The conference will feature excellent speakers discussing many elements and challenges of delivering evidence-based practice in today’s NHS.The highlight of this year’s conference will be the presentation of the results from the BRIGHTLIGHT study; many of you will have been involved with this and will have recruited young people to this study. Along with presentations on recruiting young people into research, involving young people in research, unmet needs of carers and costs of specialist care, we will hear the findings of the study that asked the key question: Do specialist cancer services for Teenagers and Young Adults add value?
