2014 World Cancer Congress (COSA)
December 2, 2014 @ 9:00 am - December 4, 2014 @ 6:00 pm
The 2014 World Cancer Congress will be held in conjunction with the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia (COSA) Annual Scientific Meeting.
COSA’s Annual Scientific Meeting (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.
In 2014 we are hosting COSA’s 41st ASM at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre 2-4 December. The theme for the 41st conference will highlight cancer survivorship, supportive care and palliative care – all important areas of interest for COSA members.
The scientific programme will be complemented by high quality oral and poster presentations and an exhibition promoting the latest in cancer pharmaceuticals, medical, diagnostic and therapeutic equipment and developments in supportive care and cancer education. The Organising Committee, led by A/Professor Mei Krishnasamy, will ensure the full programme includes the broad range of multidisciplinary sessions the COSA membership has come to appreciate at the ASM.
The social events, traditionally highly regarded by our multidisciplinary delegates, will offer an opportunity to renew friendships and establish new professional connections – presenting networking prospects not possible at any other forum and remembered for many months to come after the event.
Mei Krishnasamy has graciously agreed to act as convenor for the 2014 COSA ASM. Mei is currently Director of Cancer Nursing Practice and Research and Director of the Department of Cancer Experiences Research at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne, Victoria. COSA is delghted to have Mei’s enthusiasm and experience lead the 2014 ASM programme.
