While medical research news has been mixed, a series of awareness initiatives organised by charities and facilitated by the public have turned attention back to the practical assistance of people in need.

Read on to learn more about the latest developments in care services, medical research and awareness initiatives.

Awareness initiatives

  • Fundraising and awareness initiatives have been held across the country to mark Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, Lung Cancer Awareness Month and Mouth Cancer Action Month.
  • November was also COPD Awareness Month. A series of events and discussion groups were held to raise awareness of this condition, which disproportionately affects older adults.
  • Self Care Week took place from November 14 – 20. Supported by the NHS, the initiative is designed to give people the information they need to look after themselves at home.
  • World Diabetes Day was held on November 14. Led by the International Diabetes Federation, this year’s event aimed to raise awareness of complications with diabetes.

Join us again at the end of December for the final Care Sector News Review instalment of 2016.
