Behavioural Research in Cancer Control Conference 2015

Behavioural Research in Cancer Control Conference 2015

View_programThis year, Cancer Council NSW will host the 12th Behavioural Research in Cancer Control Conference in Sydney, showcasing innovative and effective methods of advancing research evidence into cancer control practice and policy.

Our conference theme in 2015 is ‘Bridging the Gap’ between research evidence, and practice and policy and we have a packed program with streams covering: advocacy, cancer screening, developments in cancer control, early detection, evaluation, Indigenous issues, lifestyle behaviours and interventions, psychosocial outcomes, prevention, and supportive and practical care.

Supported by Cancer Council Australia (through its Public Health Committee) and sponsored by the Cancer Institute NSW, this event, held over three and a half days, attracts behavioural researchers and program staff from Cancer Councils, Universities and other research institutes both in Australia and internationally. It provides an opportunity for a ‘meeting of minds’ on the latest developments in cancer control research and how this translates into more effective strategies aimed at preventing and improving cancer outcomes.

We are lucky to have four internationally recognised keynote speakers – Dr Graham Colditz, Professor Carolyn Gotay, Professor Phyllis Butow and Associate Professor Gail Garvey. Each of these speakers will bring their own unique perspective to our conference theme ‘Bridging the Gap’.

This is an excellent forum to network and share your ideas and expertise. We look forward to welcoming you to Sydney.
