Impacts of COVID-19 on cancer diagnosis and treatment

Seminar Date: July 30, 2020 Theme:Cancer, COVID-19

The unprecedented pressure of the COVID-19 pandemic on hospital wards and ICUs necessitated rapid redeployment of staff and capacity towards the management of COVID-19 cases with deprioritisation of non-emergency clinical services, including diagnostics and elective specialist surgery.

In this online event, two experts talk about their work on modelling the impacts of Covid-19 on cancer diagnosis and treatment and the experience of maintaining cancer surgery services during the pandemic.
