The Australian and New Zealand Children’s Haematology/Oncology Group (ANZCHOG) Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) 2021 is being held virtually from 23rd June to 25th June 2021.
Recognised as the leading scientific meeting for paediatric oncology in Australia and New Zealand, the ANZCHOG ASM 2021 will bring together paediatric oncologists haematologists, nurses, allied and mental health professionals, research scientists, clinical research professionals, parents and consumers, to discuss the latest developments in research and treatment.
This year’s theme is: “Clinical decision-making in a time of precision, hope and uncertainty.”
This broad theme will encompass the increasingly complex decision-making needed as precision medicine and advanced genomics/epigenomics expands at a breath-taking pace, and our need to be mindful of the hope and uncertainty this creates for families and clinicians. It includes challenging clinical and ethical decision-making related to relapsed disease, difficult-to-treat cancers, and end-of-life care.
The theme embraces the breadth of clinical decision-making across medical, nursing, psychosocial and allied health staff and the contributions families make in shared decision-making processes.
ASM sessions will include precision medicine; survivorship; palliative care; ethics and drug access and cancer treatment in developing countries.
