2024 Annual Conference, 20th - 21st June, Glasgow

Sarah Ivey

My name is Sarah Ivey. I am the Team leader for the Lung Cancer CNS teams at Frimley Park Hospital and Wexham Park Hospital. I have an MSc in Palliative care.
An important part of my role is to develop the service to achieve quality care and better outcomes. I have worked collaboratively on several initiatives including: a pilot study evaluating the Rockwood Frailty Score compared to the ECOG scale for assessing patient's fitness for treatment; setting up a Nepalese Buddy Scheme; initiating Support groups and Moving On programmes which provide support and self-management strategies to patients and their families who have completed treatment; setting up a Nurse-led Best Supportive Care clinic which was commended in the GIRFT report 2020; pilot study to assess effectiveness of Enhanced Supportive Care clinic jointly working with palliative care consultant in the DGH setting.
During 2020 I learnt a new advanced nursing skill in performing EBUS sampling, to support the Respiratory Consultants and ensure that our patients continued to have rapid diagnostic testing throughout the pandemic (in line with the Cancer Strategy). My main areas of interest are Supportive Care and Research with the aim to improve QOL for our patients diagnosed with lung cancer.

The conference has been instigated and organised by LCNUK. Sponsors have contributed funding towards this event in return for exhibition space.
