Supporting Cancer Patients & Survivors

Sat, 30 Nov 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

sSupportive Care & Cancer Surviviorship in conjuction with Best of MASCC Singapore

Calling all healthcare professionals!

The National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) will be hosting the inaugural Best of MASCC (Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer) Meeting on Supportive and Survivorship Care in November 2019. The Best of MASCC Meeting Singapore is a MASCC-endorsed conference held to disseminate the most recent advances and updates in cancer supportive care, catered to local and regional healthcare professionals. While advances in cancer diagnostics and treatments have led to increased survival in cancer, patients and survivors suffer from a multitude of issues related to anticancer treatments. These can affect the patients and survivor’s quality of life and ability to return to normalcy. Hence, the goal of the symposium is to increase the awareness of supportive and survivorship care among local healthcare professionals, share the latest research findings, so as to advance the field of cancer supportive and survivorship care in Singapore.

The program will feature lectures on numerous contemporary topics related to supportive care, including survivorship in the community, symptom management and rehabilitation among cancer survivors, as well as ongoing research in each of these areas. The keynote address on the topic of “Survivorship issues across the Age Continuum” will be delivered by Professor Raymond Chan from Queensland, who is the chairperson of the Survivorship Study Group under MASCC.
