The Cancer Retreat 2023 is a half-day hybrid event for members of Cancer Trials Ireland and stakeholders in clinical oncology research in Ireland and abroad. As a hybrid event, invitees are welcome to attend in person, or virtually. While our preference is to see you in person, geography and clinical commitments make that difficult, and so links to live streaming of the event (via MS Teams).

This year’s Cancer Retreat will focus on streamlining the processes around cancer trials, which builds on stakeholder meeting around data protection taking place at the Spring DSSG. Since January, a committee of CTI staff, doctors and researchers has developed a survey for site staff that covers staffing, training and the obstacles that challenge the timely initiation and operation of trials in Ireland today. The results of that survey will be presented at the Cancer Retreat, where they will be discussed by a panel.
