The event will mainly be focused on preventive, promotive, rehabilitative and recent management strategies with inspiring plenary keynotes (National and International speakers from USA, Australia, Korea, Japan, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, UK, Bangladesh and India) combined with focused expert-led presentations and discussion providing attendees with the connections, tools and strategies for taking their research and care delivery to the next level. Apart from this, many oncologists from different specialty from Nepal, cancer survivors as well as different concerned authorities will take active participation in the conference. We hope that this will give new dimension to treat cancer patient in South Asian countries and upgrade oncology, not only in Nepal but globally.
On March 1-3, 2018, the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre at the University Health Network and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto will host a conference “Global Cancer Control: Creating the Future” on innovation and next generation of approaches to global cancer control. This meeting will map the current state and explore future potential for improved cancer control with a focus on cancer care equity, next generation strategies and capitalization on millennial values. Keynote addresses by global leaders, workshops, panel discussions, rapid-fire posters, and “in-café” sessions are designed to engage cancer, global health, technology, and education experts as well as political and civil society leaders to identify opportunities for innovation and collaboration to accelerate the progress against cancer globally and to place a focus on cancer control firmly on the global development agenda.
The conference objectives are:
- To explore next generation approaches to cancer control, disruptive innovation, and foster transdisciplinary engagement to address global cancer challenges.
- To build together partners, stimulate networks, foster and develop young leaders.
- To examine critical and potentially synergistic link between women’s and child health initiatives and global cancer control.
Multidisciplinary Cancer Management Courses (MCMC) improve cancer care globally by:
- Promoting interdisciplinary cancer management among specialists, surgeons, pathologists, and members of the oncology caregiving team
- Teaching multidisciplinary management of the most prevalent cancer types in the host country
- Providing mock tumor boards and education on different aspects of treatment, from initial presentation to end of life care
Under the theme "From science to real-life oncology", the ECCO 2018 European Cancer Summit will bring together worldwide leaders from the cancer healthcare, patient advocacy and stakeholder communities in a unique multidisciplinary forum.
