The UAE Cancer Congress was inaugurated in 2009 with the hopes of promoting a multidisciplinary approach to the management of individuals with cancer. It continues this year with the theme of â€œPromoting Excellence in Oncologyâ€ with the principal goal of promoting multidisciplinary care of patients suffering from cancer. This yearâ€™s program boasts top regional and international faculty who have come together to bring delegates various didactic lectures, debates and challenging case presentations. There will also be oral presentations of abstracts and surgical videos of the best research submitted from the region. Additionally there will be workshops on nutrition, surgical oncology, and sessions specifically for nurses.
The congress also continually supports education, research and training by providing abstract awards, research grant awards and travel grants to potential delegates from low income countries. The top abstracts submitted will be published in the Journal of Cancer.
