As part of the radioligand therapy project, The Health Policy Partnership (HPP) will hold an online event on 9 September to launch the UK application of the Radioligand Therapy Readiness Assessment Framework.
The event, ‘Achieving readiness for radioligand therapy in the UK’, will feature leading clinicians and experts from Prostate Cancer UK, Neuroendocrine Cancer UK and the British Nuclear Medicine Society discussing how to improve current integration and future readiness for radioligand therapy. The event will outline how to implement multi-sectoral working to drive proactive policymaking for radioligand therapy, and explore how the UK can achieve a ready system that can successfully integrate new targeted cancer therapies.
HPP has developed a policy action blueprint for radioligand therapy and accompanying situation analysis report. The report analyses the current integration of radioligand therapy in the UK and the blueprint offers policy recommendations for achieving health system readiness for the therapy.
The launch will take place from 14:00 to 15:30 BST on Thursday, 9 September and will be moderated by Dr Suzanne Wait, Managing Director of The Health Policy Partnership.
