Children with Cancer Study Day
The teaching staff based at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in conjunction with medical staff organise an annual Study Day which aims to provide support and information for staff involved with the education of pupils with cancer. The annual programme, which has been well received in previous years, includes talks by a consultant and senior nursing staff on the treatment, effects and outcomes, as well as contributions from a wide range of other professionals who care for young oncology patients, both in the hospital and the community.
During the day there is also the opportunity to discuss any problems which the young people themselves or their siblings may experience in school and to see some of the work completed by students whilst they are in hospital.
The event is held in November and schools eligible to attend will be sent an invitation during the first term of the academic year. Positive feedback on the importance and value of attending the event has been received.
If you would like any further information regarding this Study Day or the opportunity to attend please contact the school on firstname.lastname@example.org
