MONTHLY FEATURED PARTNER: The Scottish Sarcoma Network
July is Sarcoma Awareness Month.
The Scottish Sarcoma Network is one of the three National Managed Clinical Networks for Cancer in Scotland. It was officially launched in November 2004 and its primary aim is to ensure equity of care for all patients in Scotland with sarcoma. The aim will be achieved by prospectively auditing the quality of care provided to all patients in Scotland so that continual improvements can be made and this will hopefully lead to the outcomes and quality of life for patients being improved.
Each year, the Liverpool Team raise awareness of sarcoma with final year Medical Students and Foundation Year Doctors (FY1s and FY2s), and you can learn more about this on the British Medical Journal course finder page.
Consultant Clinical Oncologist Dr Ioanna Nixon, has written an article for the Royal College of Radiologists on compassionate leadership.
