The 10th Acta Oncologica Symposium:
European Cancer Rehabilitation & Survivorship Symposium (ECRS) 2012 is intended to bring together European researchers, clinicians, cancer survivors, program planners, policy-makers, and public health experts to learn about current and emerging cancer rehabilitation and survivorship research.
Cancer survivors represent a new group of chronically ill in our ageing European populations and this brings challenging problems both in terms of prevalence of late effects and needs for rehabilitation. Thus, more exchange of experience, evidence based knowledge and ideas across the European borders are needed in order to further develop this challenging field.
ECRS 2012 offers an opportunity to learn more about:
- How to integrate cancer treatment, late effects, rehabilitation and survivorship
Comorbidity and ageing – new challenges
How do we integrate health behaviour and psychosocial support in cancer treatment?
Endocrine late effects and fertility issues – how do we counsel patients?
Childhood cancer, late effects and rehabilitation
ECRS 2012 will be held, at the Tivoli Hotel & Congress Center located in central Copenhagen.
The symposium will take place September 17-18, 2012. We hope to see you by then.
