Description

VCCC MONDAY LUNCH LIVE EVENT

Towards better outcomes for cancer survivors

Presenters: A/Professor Michael Jefford, Deputy Head, Department of Medical Oncology and Dr Karolina Lisy, Senior Research Fellow, Cancer Experiences Research, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre

To address the lack of robust population-based data regarding the lived experience of cancer survivors the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre commissioned the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measures or PROMs project.

This study used a cross sectional survey to assess the quality of life of survivors of breast, colorectal, prostate cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphoma or melanoma, one-, three- and five years post-diagnosis. The study assessed associations between various demographic and disease-related factors and quality of life. The results highlight the need to better understand the factors that affect quality of life for cancer survivors, especially for those at higher risk, and opportunities to use this knowledge to improve current results.

Light lunch served in the atrium from 12.30pm.

Lecture: 1pm- 2pm.
