Ocular Melanoma Patient Conference, Novotel Hotel, Heathrow

OcuMel UK and MPNE are delighted to work in partnership, organising a 3-day conference bringing patients and caregivers the latest information on ocular melanoma and rare cancer’s.

We understand that being diagnosed with Ocular Melanoma or other rare cancers can leave patients facing many challenges. There is often a lack of support available and many hospitals do not have the knowledge or expertise to correctly advise on surveillance, treatments and sources of up-to-date information.

During the 3 days, we shall address these issues and look at how patient groups, working closely together, can find a complementary approach by sharing the workload. Patient concerns span national, pan-European and worldwide borders and recognising this can enable a more focused and efficient approach to advocacy.

Our approach will have far-reaching effects on clinical trial design, harnessing the best research and accelerating access to the latest and most promising treatments.

Attendees Can Expect:
• Specialist Speakers: providing information at both introductory and a more advanced level.

• Socialising & Networking opportunities: We know that many of you will be looking forward to meeting up with friends which you have met online and meeting new contacts/ friends so we have built in plenty of time for people to meet and make new friends over morning/ afternoon breaks and lunch.

• Wellbeing Workshops: we understand that the contents of the conference and information may be a lot to take in and emotional for some of you. By offering Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness sessions to run in line with the speakers (at an introduction level) we hope this will give you the chance to take time out and learn about techniques that may help you cope with the many difficulties living with a rare cancer can bring.
