NAEDI research conference

The Third National Awareness and Early Diagnosis Initiative (NAEDI) research conference was held on 26th – 27th March in central London. It brought together researchers, clinicians, policy makers and people affected by cancer to share and discuss the latest research findings, their impact on policy, and implications for the future of earlier cancer diagnosis.

Laura Zwaan won the patient poster prize at this conference. The title of her poster: “Looking without seeing or not believing your eyes? An eye-tracking study on diagnosing X-rays.”

The patient panel (made up of ten people affected by cancer) judged all 50 research poster on impact of results on the public and patients and accessibility of the research (i.e. written and verbal communication).
All of the posters were of very high quality, so it is a great achievement to have been selected as the winner. You we also scored highly by the expert poster panel, made up of the session chairs.
