The speakers were all excellent and shared their knowledge and experience in a variety of presentations. Here are some of the comments made in the evaluations:

  • The content of the event was incredibly interesting as well as inspiring.
  • Odyssey conferences are always very well organised and the content exceptional. It was brilliant, thank you.
  • Good variation of topics.
  • The content of the day was relevant to me in my role.
  • Very fascinating and would love to have heard more
  • Fantastic and inspiring speakers.
  • All speakers got their point across.
  • All speakers were able to hold our attention through all their talk.

In addition to the medical side of cancer and survivorship, Odyssey shared its story and how it helps those with cancer on their journey. It was a huge insight to have a personal story from a past participant of Odyssey and how the mental health issues are not always recognized. Through programmes and raising the awareness of everyone’s unique experience it is hoped that care is not compromised. It is vital that services link with each other to have a seamless transition and ensure that the care given maintains its high standards.
