Invitation from the Convenor
On behalf of the organising committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to the 2nd Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conference, ‘The Survivorship Equation. Evidence + Best Practice = Better Outcomes’, from 8 – 9 February 2018 at the Walter & Eliza Hall Institute, Melbourne.
Proudly presented by the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, the 2nd Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conference will build on the sold out inaugural event, held in October 2016. We are developing a diverse and stimulating program which will ask how we can harness evidence and best practice to improve outcomes for all cancer survivors.
We welcome all professionals across medicine, nursing and allied health, as well as people affected by cancer, to join us for two days of thought-provoking and enlightening talks.
Two keynote presentations will be delivered by internationally renowned leaders in survivorship:
Dr Jonathan Sussman is Director of the Supportive Care Research Unit at the Juravinski Cancer Centre, Ontario, and Director of the Program in Transitions in Care within the Applied Health Research Network of the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
Dr Lonneke van de Poll-Franse is a Professor of Cancer Epidemiology and Survivorship at Tilburg University, Netherlands, Group Leader at the Netherlands Cancer Institute and Senior Researcher at the Comprehensive Cancer Organisation Netherlands.
This is Victoria’s premier cancer survivorship event and we encourage delegates and contributors to act promptly to secure your place. Sponsorship packages are now available.
We hope that you can join us for a inspiring and productive meeting.
Associate Professor Michael Jefford, Conference Convenor
