Oral cancer - identify, refer, prevent

Friday 23 November 2018 | London


The number of cases of oral cancer across the UK continues to increase with latest figures showing that more than 7,000 new cases were diagnosed last year*. Early detection is key and can improve chances of survival. A growing number of patients are accusing their dentist of missing the signs and taking legal action. This one-day course helps define the dental team’s duty of care, offering information and advice on how to manage oral cancer effectively and sensitively.
