World cancer congress



The theme for the congress Joining forces - accelerating progress will emphasise the impact that can be realised by consistently and energetically applying what we know, rather than waiting for possible future "breakthroughs" to change the landscape. This will be discussed across a variety of economic and cultural contexts. A biennial event, congress serves as a platform for discourse and advocacy as well as a learning and sharing opportunity for our members and partners around the world. Convening and engaging cancer control experts and leaders in global health under one roof is essential to find solutions and actions to reduce the impact of cancer on communities around the world.

The congress will be held in conjunction with the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia (COSA) annual scientific meeting (ASM). COSA's ASM is considered the premier gathering of cancer health professionals in Australia each year. Delegates to the meeting include clinicians and researchers representing medical and radiation oncologists, cancer surgeons, nurses, psycho-oncologists, pharmacists, and other allied health workers. The theme for the 41st conference will highlight cancer survivorship, supportive care and palliative care all important areas of interest for COSA members.
