There is a rising number of blood cancer patients in Singapore. Many of these blood cancers are now curable or manageable with medications over long periods of time, that they are almost similar to chronic diseases like diabetes and COPD.

With advancements in knowledge and management of blood cancers, more people are living longer and are increasingly presenting to Primary Care Practitioners.

Organised by SingHealth Duke-NUS Blood Cancer Centre, this forum is an interactive session aimed at updating our primary care colleagues on common presentations of haematological conditions and how best to manage these situations.

Through small round table hands-on and interactive discussions and talks, GPs/Family Physicians will find out how they can help with early identification, which conditions need prompt referral, and others that can be co-managed.
