Welcome Message


It is with great pleasure that the Victorian Integrated Cancer Services announce the 3rd VICS Conference will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on the 11th and 12th of May 2017.

Following the success of the two previous biennial conferences, the 2017 conference will provide a great opportunity for health services, clinicians, researchers and consumers to learn about current and emerging work being undertaken in the cancer sector and build connections across the cancer community.

The overarching theme for the conference is Optimal Care in Cancer and will cover a range of topics:
• Optimal cancer treatments
• Primary care
• Survivorship
• Supportive care
• Using research and data to improve services
• Patient experiences
• Patient-centered palliative care

You are warmly invited to participate in what will be a rich program for learning, networking and collaboration. You will be able to interact with colleagues from diverse backgrounds with a common interest in optimising cancer care.

We look forward to meeting you in May 2017.

Sue Riches

Chair of the 2017 VICS Conference Committee
