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.
From Hybrid to Fully Virtual
Regrettably due to the increased numbers of COVID cases around Australia and the pressure that places on our healthcare community, the organising committee have made the decision to shift the 4th Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conference to a fully virtual event.
*This decision is regrettable, and we hope that in the future we will be able to meet face to face, in the meantime, we look forward to your attendance and engagement online.
We look forward to seeing you Online.
Professor Michael Jefford
