MSc Student Blog: Peer Update
October 30, 2015
I completed the MSc in EBHC 2014. The course provided everything I’d hoped for, and more! One of the many attractions of the course is that the modules and assignments allow you to study EBHC principles in relation to your own professional expertise. As a head and neck cancer surgeon, I was therefore able, in most instances, to develop assignments in relation to aspects of head and neck cancer which, apart from being extremely valuable, made the course even more enjoyable.
The systematic review from my dissertation, which was about the UK fast-track cancer referral system in head and neck cancer, has recently been accepted for publication as ‘The ‘two week rule’ in head and neck cancer, 2000-2014; a systematic literature review’ by the British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
Having now been ‘hooked’ by EBHC, I am starting my DPhil and I plan to examine in greater depth the evidence base for fast-track suspected cancer referral from primary to specialist care.
