Comments from the 2019 course:
- In district hospitals the majority of patients are middle aged to advanced age, thus treatment eligibility and modifications are important to individualise. It was great to discuss this.
- It was so nice to go on a course with an even mix of female and male presenters. I was very impressed with the quality of the presentations and experience of the presenters throughout both days.
- Both DLBCL talks were an excellent and accessible summary of many complex trials .
- Breakout sessions on flow cytometry and PTLD gave an opportunity to discuss cases in small groups, which is beneficial.
- I enjoyed the practical sessions regarding management and future possibilities that may be coming .
- Dr Collins presentations were very interesting and engaging and a treat to listen to .
- The sessions were pitched at a good level with relevant, but not overwhelming amounts of trial data .
- DLBCL talk by Dr Cwynarski covered the patient journey, covered important questions asked in MDT and showed evidence base for current practice.
- Thank you for the short, concise talks. They were effective in relaying information and I learnt so much.
- I really enjoyed the way Dr Follows presented by highlighting controversies and then presenting the evidence underpinning them. Dr Collins and Dr Eyre were fantastic at bridging the talks and maintaining the interest and momentum during both days. I'd definitely recommend this course.
