We are very delighted to invite you to “The 2nd Annual Meeting of Japanese Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (JASCC)”, which will be held in Omiya City, Saitama Prefecture, from October 27th to 28th 2017.
The subject of the 2nd annual meeting is “Physical and Psychological Cares for Cancer Patients”. And the goal is “To meet the various needs of patients in cancer treatments and cares.”
I, as a breast oncologist, have learned not only breast surgery but also chemotherapy, gastrointestinal surgery and endoscopy, pathology and fundamental research. Through such experiences over thirty years, I have concluded that multidisciplinary treatment by the team, consisting of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists and medical social workers, can meet the various needs of cancer patients. “Physical and Psychological Cares for Cancer Patients” will lead enhancement of multidisciplinary teams and achievement to our goal.
In the meeting programs you will find symposiums and workshops planned by the Scientific & Educational Program Committee and presentations by 17 Study Groups . Further, two special seminars are planned.
・JASCC & MASCC Joint Seminar on Friday, Oct. 27.
・Advanced Care Plan Seminar on Saturday, Oct. 28.
After the meeting you can enjoy sightseeing and excursions in Omiya, such as “The Railway Museum”, “Bonsai Art Museum” and etc. I hope to see many of you at the fruitful meeting in Omiya.
With warmest regards,
