COSA’s Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) is considered the premier gathering of cancer health professionals in our region each year. Delegates to the meeting include clinicians and researchers representing medical and radiation oncologists, cancer surgeons, nurses, pharmacists, and allied health workers.
In 2013 we are hosting COSA’s 40th ASM at the Adelaide Convention Centre 12-14 November. The theme for the 40th conference "Cancer Care Coming of Age” will highlight geriatric oncology – an emerging area of interest especially for COSA members.
For those delegates and COSA members that I haven’t met personally, I am a medical oncologist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, and am proud to act as the 2013 convenor on behalf of COSA. My main areas of interest include clinical trials and cancer in elderly – that’s one of the reasons we decided to focus on geriatric oncology in 2013. The disease theme will concentrate on gastro-intestinal cancers and will encompass gastric, oesophagus and hepatobiliary tumours which are often neglected at major meetings.
The scientific program will be complemented by high quality oral and poster presentations and an exhibition promoting the latest in cancer pharmaceuticals, medical, diagnostic and therapeutic equipment and developments in supportive care and cancer education. Of course the Program Committee and I will ensure the full program includes the broad range of multidisciplinary sessions the COSA membership has come to appreciate at the ASM.
