A conference on multi-disciplinary approach towards
The Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai, the premier tertiary cancer treatment and research centre in South Asia and one of the largest globally, is on the cusp of a momentous year, namely, the 75th year of its existence.
It gives us great pleasure to invite you to the 1st International Conference on Cancer Rehabilitation,” Can Rehab 2017- A Multidisciplinary approach” to commemorate TMC’s platinum jubilee celebrations. The conference will be held at the Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai.
Cancer and its various treatments introduce a host of implications that negatively impact function. From the point of diagnosis throughout active treatment and for the duration of a cancer survivor’s lifetime, there are short and long term risks for functional morbidity/impairment. Cancer rehabilitation is an important part of the oncology care continuum and involves an interdisciplinary team of rehabilitation professionals.
Interdisciplinary exchange, interaction and co-operation are the corner stones of optimal patient care. Educational opportunities that promote, inter professional learning and collaboration are needed to advance clinical and scientific research and its subsequent translation to clinical practice. The Can Rehab 2017 provides that opportunity by bringing together the various fields of rehabilitation medicine including oncologists, physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, psychologists, rehabilitation nurses, dieticians, social workers and other allied health professionals.
Key international speakers and participants will deliberate on these issues critically over 2 days of the conference on carefully chosen themes in the form of symposia, debates and special lectures. We are sure that the conference will be an academic feast and would appeal to all health care professionals involved in cancer rehabilitation.
(This conference is a key event for Dieticians, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Psychologists, Medical Social Workers, Speech Language Pathologists, Oncologists, Nurses and anyone involved in Oncology Rehabilitation)
