The 6th Kenya International Cancer Conference
Theme: Making Strides Towards Quality Cancer Care
21 November 2020.
The Kenya Society of Haematology and Oncology (KESHO) was founded in 2002 with the main objective of being a catalyst to research in cancer and blood diseases, to help improve patient care in these areas, and to provide physicians involved in diagnosis and treatment of these diseases with a platform to discuss ways of improving practice and outcomes.
At the start of the year, KESHO was in the initial stages of planning for its biennial international conference, however the global Covid-19 situation demanded that plans had to change. Consequentially, the Executive committee with support from our partners and stakeholders resolved to hold the 2020 conference virtually for the very first time ever!
The 6th Kenya International Cancer Conference (KICC 2020) will be hosted on our virtual platform on the 21st of November 2020, targeting over 1000 attendees from across the globe. We have partnered with the Oncology Nurses Chapter (ONC) & Kenya Hospices and Palliative Care Association (KEHPCA) and the theme this year is Making Strides Towards Quality Cancer Care. This will be a 1-day event with 2 plenaries and at least 6 breakout sessions offering a unique platform for virtual networking & trade exhibition.
Our key objectives for the conference this year are:
- To promote value-based care in oncology practice.
- To promote multidisciplinary treatment or African cancer patients and showcase current developments in cancer research in SSA.
- To advocate for early integration of palliative care in oncology
- To provide fora to discuss new quality care delivery during a pandemic
There is need for patient centred, high quality and value-based care in the management of cancers in general. This includes the whole continuum from prevention, timely access to screening, diagnosis, treatment and palliative care services; and improving rehabilitation and support activities.
Registration is free.
Thank you to all our members and partners for support!
