2011 – Evolving pathways in ocular melanoma
The University of Reading was the venue for OcuMel UK’s first conference which took place on 30th September 2011. Around 45 people attended the meeting, including patients, family members and healthcare professionals. Delegates were able to hear a variety of interesting talks and have the opportunity to ask questions and share experiences with one another. Sponsorship was generously provided by Sirtex and Delcath Systems. Click on the links below to view the videos.
After the main meeting, a consensus forum of doctors and patient representatives came together to discuss improving the way patients access body follow-up. This forum was chaired by Derek C Stewart, OBE, from the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network. This session led directly to the formation of the uveal melanoma guideline development group, and subsequently, the NICE-accredited guidelines we have today.
