MASCC 2016 | Celebrating 25 years of MASCC
Rachel Gibson, PhD of University of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia highlights the 25th anniversary of MASCC in Adelaide, Australia. MASCC organisation has dedicated 25 years working on many approaches to improve supportive care resulting in positive advances for cancer patients. Dr. Gibsons’ key message emphasizes supportive care as the absolute cornerstone of a patients’ journey. There is now a wealth of understanding behind the specific side effects of cancer treatment, therefore allowing supportive care to discover ways to support and treat patients experiencing treatment related side effects. Dr. Gibson highlights the importance of patients being aware that supportive care is available to them and should form a key component of their treatment journey, regardless of what the treatment journey holds. Patients should expect a multidisciplinary team approach to support them throughout. Recorded at the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) 2016 Annual Congress in Adelaide, Australia.
