Where are Information Days held?
Our Information Days are held in hotels, away from hospitals, to enable a relaxed and informal setting. The days involve presentations by professionals working in the brain tumour field, such as neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists and specialist nurses, who generously donate their time to make these events such a success.
Patients and carers also share their own experiences and the events give attendees a chance to meet and chat during lunch and coffee breaks.
Typical topics include:
- Memory loss
- Coping with a brain tumour diagnosis
- Financial advice and the help available
