GPs can learn about best practice for diagnosing and managing prostate cancer in a free NASGP webinar scheduled for February.
Dr Sam Merriel of Prostate Cancer UK will present a short summary of the latest research and best practice for patients during a webinar at 1pm on Thursday 1 February.
Dr Merriel is a GP in West Lancashire, NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer in the Centre for Primary Care and Health Services Research at the University of Manchester, and associate editor of the British Journal of General Practice.
He has conducted extensive research into prostate cancer diagnosis in primary care, including the role of symptoms, the accuracy of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) in primary care, and the potential impact of prostate MRI. He also served on the recent National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) prostate cancer guidelines update committee in 2021, and he has been a member of expert reference groups for Prostate Cancer UK, Movember, the National Cancer Research Institute, and NHS England.
Dr Merriel’s talk is the second in NASGP’s series for 2024, following Dr Eloise Elphinstone’s overview on ovarian cancer earlier this month.
