Past Events

3rd Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conference

The 3rd Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conference was a great success. Co-hosted by the ACSC with the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre, we welcomed almost 200 local and international delegates.

The conference theme, ‘A 2020 Vision – Building on learnings, partnering for success’, acknowledges significant progress in research and practice improvement, anticipates the next steps and recognises the importance of broad partnerships to achieve optimal outcomes for cancer survivors. 

The two-day conference included a strong line-up of local and international speakers who shared their outstanding work. Invited speakers included Anton Enus, Prof Deborah K Mayer, Prof Adam Glaser and  Prof Afaf Girgis AM. 

   

The important work of the ACSC and our collaborators was showcased throughout the conference with presentations from Professor Michael Jefford, Dr Karolina Lisy, Helana Kelly, Amanda Piper, Nicole Kinnane, Dr Victoria Garwood, Suzannah Roushdy, Dr Claudia Zeneca Morales and Yunhui (Cherry) Liang.

It was positive to see so much qualit​y work to improve the standard of care for cancer survivors featured throughout the conference. We congratulate the winners of the conference awards:

  • Best Student Presentation – Dr Victoria Garwood
  • Best Oral Presentation – Nathan Harrison
  • Best Poster Presentation – Paula Howell

Conference delegates were highly entertained by the great debate. The panel discussion reflected on ‘Taking charge. People living with and beyond cancer must manage their own healthcare needs’.  We saw the return of seasoned debaters Prof Jon Emery and Prof Bogda Koczwara. Joining Prof Emery in the affirmative team were Prof Deborah Mayer and Dr Marcus Grzechnik (consumer representative). Joining Prof Koczwara in the opposing team were Prof Grant McArthur and Meg Rynderman (ACSC consumer representative).

Further details can be found at the 3rd Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conference.  The 4th Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conference will be held in 2022.
