The Oncology Network is proud to share this episode of The Oncology Journal Club podcast with you.


Our Host Professor Craig Underhill has a great interview on onco-burnout. Dr Kate Clarke talks us through breast cancer highlights from 2023 and Professor Christopher Jackson gets stuck into Prophylactic Radiation Therapy for High-Risk Asymptomatic Bone Metastases.

We also have a fascinating selection of quick bites with the usual high-level analysis and entertaining banter.
