The way in which cancer is diagnosed, staged and managed has considerably changed over the past 10 years, and with time and budgetary restrictions, medical education plays a key role in ensuring that healthcare professionals dealing with cancer patients are informed of the latest treatment advances and shifts in thinking.

In an article published in the summer issue of Medical Writing, the European Medical Writers Association's official journal, Shanida Nataraja, Editorial and Scientific Director at AXON Communications, addresses some of the emerging trends in medical education, particularly those that are key drivers of the way in which medical education is executed in the oncology arena. She explores who is now being targeted through medical education, how medical education is being designed and delivered, whether medical education can be delivered strategically, and what impact tighter regulations and budgetary constraints have had on the way in which medical education can be executed.
