EMAHSN Cancer Innovation Exchange

Putting proven innovations into practice at pace and scale

This key event will focus on the opportunity to put proven innovations in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer into practice at pace and scale throughout the East Midlands. It is organised and hosted by the East Midlands Academic Health Science Network in partnership with the East Midlands NHS Strategic Clinical Networks and Medilink East Midlands.

The EMAHSN, supported by our NHS partner organisations throughout the East Midlands, has recently adopted cancer diagnosis and treatment as one of our key clinical areas; this event will launch this programme.

Why attend?
The event will bring together senior representatives from NHS service providers, clinicians, commissioners, social care, patients, industry and the third-sector to build shared understanding, develop collaboration and support the uptake of proven innovations, focused on addressing the one of region’s biggest healthcare challenges.

The programme will include:

  • Expert keynote speakers to outline the cancer healthcare challenge
  • The East Midlands situation, challenges and opportunities from clinician, commissioner and patient perspectives
  • Networking opportunities and information areas
  • Breakout sessions on the key priority areas
  • An opportunity for companies to present overviews of relevant proven innovations
  • Details of the EMAHSN programme to support putting innovations into practice

The event will include a call for project proposals from EMAHSN, the focus of which will be implementation of proven innovations at pace and scale. Potential projects should align with and be complimentary to existing plans for the improvement of cancer diagnosis and treatment across the East Midlands. Emerging priority areas for projects include improving early identification, accelerating access to care and treatment, and workforce capacity and capability.
