Tawam Hospital, in affiliation with Johns Hopkins Medicine and part of the SEHA healthcare system, is hosting the third edition of the Emirates Oncology Conference and 14th Pan-Arab Cancer Congress from November 13 to 15, 2014 at the Emirates Palace hotel in Abu Dhabi. Tawam Hospital is the UAE’s referral centre for cancer care, and the Tawam Oncology Department is at the forefront of cancer treatment in the Gulf.
Close to 1000 attendees are expected to participate in the conference which will feature more than 80 international and local speakers who will share their expertise in the field of Oncology. The conference will include speakers from Johns Hopkins Medicine, the UAE and entire Gulf region, as well as from the broader international medical community. Speakers will address new developments, issues, and challenges in cancer treatment, research, education and palliative care.
This year’s conference programme will include sessions on clinical trials and cancer registry along with content-specific oncology sessions covering breast cancer; palliative care; gastrointestinal, gynecological, pulmonary and urological cancers; hematology and pediatric cancer treatments. Participants of the clinical trial trainings will also be eligible for certifications.
New for this year’s conference will be sessions on geriatrics, sarcoma, neuro-oncology and supportive care and cancer screening. Tawam Hospital’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Stephen Spann will hold the lecture on cancer screening.
“Tawam Hospital is proud to bring one of the biggest conferences in Oncology in the region which is now on its third run. The past two conferences proved to be well-attended and successful. We are seeing the same trend for this year’s conference as we are already receiving huge interests from participants in the UAE and around the region. The insights from both participants and lecturers will prove invaluable to the oncology community as we openly discuss both developments and challenges,” said Dr Mohammed Jaloudi, Chair, Emirates Oncology Conference.
This year’s conference also sees the support from the European School of Oncology as well as the Breast-Gynecological International Cancer Society (BGICS), a non-profit group aiming to promote optimal standards of care for patients with breast-gynecological cancers.
