Leptomeningeal Metastases, Neurotoxicity, Paraneoplastic  Syndromes, Rare Tumours (Primary CNS lymphoma, pineal tumours), Ethical Considerations


The need for multidisciplinary working in neuro-oncology is well established but a common theme that will be addressed is the need for better understanding between core specialties within the Neuro-oncology Multidisciplinary Team.


To address this, this course has been designed for Trainees, Consultants and Clinical Nurse Specialists in the core specialities of neuro-oncology – Neurology, Neurosurgery, Clinical Oncology, Neuroradiology, Neuropathology and Palliative Care.


The Aims of the Course are:


  • To introduce the basic principles and recent advances in Neuro-oncological treatments
  • To develop a standardised approach to the diagnosis and classification of brain and spinal tumours using modern imaging, histopathology and molecular genetic techniques.
  • To develop an understanding of the multidisciplinary management of patients with primary and metastatic brain and spine tumours, and other rarer tumours of the nervous system.
  • To develop an understanding of the symptomatic management of the brain tumour patient with neurological symptoms, including palliative and end-of-life care and treatment related toxicity.
  • To provide an opportunity for multidisciplinary discussion of common and rare cases


The course will be divided into four days throughout 2017-2018 and will be delivered by the consultant staff of the UCLH/UCL/National Hospital Neuro-oncology multidisciplinary team. There will be a series of lectures followed by an opportunity to discuss Case Presentations at the end of the day.
