Welcome to the VICS Conference 2019

On behalf of the Organising Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to the 4th Victorian Integrated Cancer Services (VICS) Conference, from 9-10 May 2019 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Building on from the success of our previous biennial conferences, the 4th VICS Conference will provide the opportunity for health services, clinicians, researchers and consumers to come together to learn about current and emerging work being undertaken in the cancer sector and build connections across the cancer community.

We are developing a diverse and stimulating program that embraces a variety of perspectives in the delivery of cancer care that supports innovation and best practice and ensures our delegates have the greatest opportunity for collaboration..

The overarching theme for the Conference is Partnering to optimise patient outcomes in cancer.  The program will cover a range of topics:

  • Innovation in the delivery of care
  • Delivering outcomes/impacts and improving the patient experience
  • Supporting under-served populations
  • Identifying and monitoring unwarranted variations in cancer care
  • Consumer engagement

Two keynote presentations will be delivered by internationally renowned leaders in the cancer field.

We welcome all professionals across medicine, nursing and allied health, as well as people affected by cancer, to join us for two days of thought-provoking and enlightening talks. We hope that many of you will submit abstracts to the program to showcase your work.

We look forward to joining with you in May 2019 for an inspiring and productive conference.
