2018 International Cancer Education Conference

From 3 to 5 October 2018 in Atlanta, GA, USA, the American Association for Cancer Education (AACE), the Cancer Patient Education Network (CPEN), and the European Association for Cancer Education (EACE) will sponsor the premier meeting in North America dedicated to cancer education, the International Cancer Education Conference (ICEC). The meeting is designed to support cancer educators to learn best practices for cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. Our overarching goal is to increase positive outcomes for cancer patients/survivors and their families. Effective evidence-based education is pivotal in developing cancer scientists, advancing cancer curriculum and therapies in professional health education programs and in achieving optimal outcomes for cancer patients/survivors.  The use of best practices in professional, patient and family education  contributes significantly to the ongoing national and international efforts to reduce cancer morbidity and mortality. The goal of the ICEC is to facilitate interdisciplinary research and practice/program collaborations among cancer educators on a national and global level. Educational models, programs and research strategies will be presented to support the development of evidence-based practices in the field of cancer education.

The theme of the 2018 ICEC is Cancer Education: Bridging the Gap through Health Equity, Innovation and Advocacy in Global Communities. Patient, professional, and community educational programs and researchers addressing all cancer types with a focus on underserved populations will be presented.

Oncologists, primary care physicians, surgeons, radiologists, ministries of health, cancer experts (government and association), researchers, nurses, dentists, geneticists, epidemiologists, behavioral scientists, pharmacists, pharmacologists, health educators, librarians, social workers, allied and public health professionals, students, and patient advocacy groups will be in attendance. Past participants have included attendees from the world’s medical centers, cancer care organizations, and academic institutions responsible for developing, implementing, and evaluating cancer education curricula, research, and programs.
