Invitation to Join Us
It is my pleasure as convenor, to invite you to participate in the 4th Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conference, Shifting Gears: Rethinking Survivorship, presented by the VCCC Alliance and the Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre.
Following great success at previous conferences, we will again bring together the VCCC Alliance partners who are committed to cancer control.
These include the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne Health (including The Royal Melbourne Hospital), The University of Melbourne, The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, The Royal Women’s Hospital, The Royal Children’s Hospital, Western Health, St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne, Austin Health and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute.
Our conference theme Shifting Gears: Rethinking Survivorship will consider how recent advances in cancer survivorship research and care can be adopted, as well as consider future system transformation, to better meet the needs of the growing survivorship population. We will particularly recognise changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are proud to announce our international speakers, Professor Smita Bhatia (USA) and Professor Christoffer Johansen (Denmark). These speakers will be joined by excellent Australian speakers, Professor Ray Chan and Professor Linda Denehy.
We look forward to meeting up with colleagues from around Australia next March.
Professor Michael Jefford
We are planning to conduct the conference as a hybrid event, however, we encourage our Australian audience to join us in person in Melbourne.
If government restrictions apply; and in person attendance is not available, the conference will be offered as a fully virtual event.
*Our international speakers will be joining the conference virtually due to Australian government travel restrictions.
