2016 Innovations in Cancer Treatment and Care Conference

Cancer Institute NSW



Australian Technology Park Bay 8, Locomotive Street Eveleigh, Redfern

Join us for our fifth annual Innovations in Cancer Treatment and Care Conference on Friday, 16 September 2016 — this year's theme is Psychosocial care, featuring keynote speaker Professor Jane Turner.

Registration is now open for the 2016 Innovations in Cancer Treatment and Care Conference here.

This free conference provides health professionals across NSW with an opportunity to hear, collaborate and share the latest innovations in quality cancer treatment and care.

This year's keynote address will be delivered by Professor Jane Turner of the University of Queensland and the Department of Consultation Liaison Psychiatry at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital. Professor Turner is engaged in research evaluating a structured intervention for fear of cancer recurrence in women who have had breast cancer and is leading a trial of a nurse-delivered survivorship intervention for patients who have completed treatment for head and neck cancer.

She will speak on the psychosocial needs of people with cancer from diagnosis and across the treatment pathway.
