We Can, I Can

Welcome to the SCPN Conference portal.

Our 2016 Conference was entitled ‘We Can, I Can’ as we celebrated World Cancer Day – the 4th February 2016. The conference, held in the heart of Edinburgh, aimed to bring delegates the latest evidence on lifestyle and cancer risk with WCRF evaluating what evidence has become stronger over recent years and what has receded. We explored obesity in a cancer context, the latest evidence on melanoma and the interplay between genetics, lifestyle and cancer risk. In addition we heard about the latest bowel screening FIT test, results from the REX study and how large datasets can be used to transform change in cancer. A real treat was Dr Andrew Murray inspiring us how to engage patients in physical activity, and of course we heard the patient’s voice too – powerful!
