The Cancer Data and Outcomes Conference is the most important conference of the year for the Evidence Department and for Macmillan’s evidence agenda. Over recent years, our presence has grown, and this year was bigger than ever for us with three posters being presented on physical activity and cancer. We were able to put more of our evidence in front of commissioners, policy makers, patients and other researchers and Justin Webb from our team along with representatives from CFE research attended to present our posters.
The three posters were titled:
- Increasing the frequency of physical activity very brief advice for cancer patients
- Macmillan physical activity behaviour change care pathway evaluation
- What motivates people with cancer to get active?
We are aware that a lot of you get asked or apply to showcase your work at local or national events.
If you are considering applying to present at conferences/events, please do contact the physical activity team first.
We have a number of resources available to support this, where we will also be attending we would like to coordinate presentations to get the most impact.
