Choosing Wisely: Value added cancer care for India
15 - 16 Oct 2019
All India Institute of Medical Science, New Delhi, India
On behalf of the International Scientific Committee and the local organising committee, we would like to invite you to participate in this superb summit designed to support the continued medical education of early career oncologists. The meeting is being held in New Delhi on the 15th and 16th October 2019.
The meeting has been organised by the National Cancer Grid of India, AIIMS and ecancer, a UK charity providing free/low cost education to the oncology community, to support better outcomes for cancer patients.
The meeting is also supported by faculty from King’s College, London and University College London
The meeting will be attended by around 250 early career oncologists from across India, as well as surgical, ENT, and radiotherapy trainees and other doctors involved in the first line treatment of cancer.
Our goal is to extend the knowledge of prevention, screening, diagnostics, palliation and therapeutics topics in the five most commonly diagnosed malignancies (breast, gynaecological, lung, head and neck and gastric cancer).
These topics will be approached from the perspective of 'choosing wisely', an initiative recently launched in India which is seeking to reduce low value and harmful practices in cancer care . The programme will be delivered by regional and international experts.
Our objective is to help support capacity building in the India healthcare system, promote best practice and ultimately deliver better outcomes for cancer patients. You can see the full agenda here.
There is a registration fee of 500 INR for fully qualified doctors. Registration will open in July. You can reserve your place here.
