Learn, network, influence, develop

Our professional education group aims to advance the role that networking and learning play in improving the care of teenagers and young adults with cancer, by:

  • Facilitating multi-disciplinary conferences and training events;
  • Supporting professionals new to the field;
  • Influencing the education agenda for professionals working in the field;
  • Disseminating information on education and training opportunities;
  • Contributing to the development of competency-based training for professionals caring for teenagers and young adults with cancer.

Group Chair:

Dr Rachael Windsor, Locum Consultant Paediatric and Adolescent Oncologist

TYAC Conferences

Our national conferences cover a wide variety of clinical and psychosocial topics, and provide the ideal forum for bringing teenage and young adult cancer professionals together. All members of the multi-disciplinary team are encouraged to attend and contribute. Poster and/or oral abstracts are called for, and each year we award the Lisa Thaxter prize.

An excellent conference giving a broad overview, pitched appropriately at the entire multi-disciplinary team and with a good mix of science, practice issues and personal experience.

Interested in joining the group?  We'd love to hear from you.
