Putting the Person Front and Centre: Changing your Clinical Practice

Join us for the 5th Biennial Head and Neck Cancer Symposium at the Princess Alexandra Hospital.

The Princess Alexandra Hospital and Translational Research Institute are internationally recognised for their multidisciplinary specialist clinical and research skill in the management of head and neck cancer. This truly multidisciplinary two day symposium brings together the expertise of community, clinical and research leaders to explore cutting edge innovations in head and neck cancer. Our theme this year focusses on putting the person as the centre of treatment, as an integral team member along their cancer trajectory.

With that in mind we have invited Julie McCrossin (TROG Patient Ambassador, ABC Radio/TV journalist and broadcaster, and oropharyngeal cancer survivor) to lead us, stimulate discussion, and challenge our thinking.

We invite registrations from medical professionals (ENT/maxillofacial/plastic surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology, palliative care specialists), nurses, radiation therapists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, dietitians, physiotherapists, social workers, psychologists, dentists, and any other interested health professionals wanting to expand their capacity to best treat our patients and their families with head and neck cancer.

Registrants will be expected to have an understanding and basic knowledge of head and neck cancer management. Prior experience working with this patient population is beneficial for this event. The symposium will be focused at a multidisciplinary intermediate-advanced level.

For more information, please see the Head and Neck Cancer Symposium website.
