CRUK RCGP faculty workshops are educationally focused workshops to support ‘jobbing’ GPs to enhance their role in primary care and cancer control, and gain RCGP academic credit.

The aims of the workshops are to provide an evidence based, clinically relevant update for primary care focused on prevention and early diagnosis of cancer. Workshops typically have between 40 and 70 delegates and are supported by local RCGP faculty and Cancer Research UK facilitator team.

Each agenda is developed in partnership with CRUK, RCGP, cancer alliances and commissioners, and provides the opportunity to showcase local projects and developments to improve cancer survival. These workshops are interactive and include a mix of expert presentations, group discussions and question and answer sessions. 

The workshops evaluate well with delegates who share the impact from each workshop through their top 3 key take-home messages and commitment to change pledge on how they plan to implement the practical knowledge gained into everyday practice in primary care.

Evaluation of our 2018 faculty workshops

  • Knowledge and understanding of NG 12 – Recognition and referral of suspected cancer as high or very high was 30% pre- workshop and 90% post workshop.
  • 90% of participants rated the workshop as extremely or very likely to improve their practice.
