Welcome to PHOSSCON 2016 the first ever Pediatric Haematology Oncology Support Services Conference in India to run parallel to PHOCON this
3rd-5th November 2016 in Mumbai.
PHOCON is an annual conference which brings together over 500 professionals, including Paediatric Oncologists, Medical Oncologists, Paediatricians, Paediatric Surgeons, Radiation Oncologists, Pathologists, Basic Scientists, students and fellows from various parts of the country in the field of Paediatric Haematology-Oncology. The guest faculty includes distinguished national and international experts in the field. PHOCON this year is in Tata Medical Hospital from 4th to 6th November ’2016.
In November 2015, CanKids was invited by the Executive Body of Paediatric haematology oncology chapter (PHO) of The Indian Academy of paediatrics (IAP) to create and organise this parallel track for social support services and organisations for the first time ever. PHOSSCON is being generously supported by Leukemia Crusaders
The aim for PHOSSCON is to be an annual feature and develop a conference track akin to the annual Childhood Cancer International (CCI) conference. CCI is also closely linked to SIOP - the International Society of Paediatric Oncology - and it is from the guidelines set by these organisations that CanKids has developed and adapted its models of holistic care and support for families of children with cancer, and that have led to the development of the overarching project - Change for Childhood Cancer in India. CanKids is a full member of CCI and our Chairman Ms. Bagai is also on the CCI board member & treasurer.
PHOSSCON is an opportunity for all those engaged in making a change for childhood cancer -
You, your organization, a childhood cancer champion, or a pediatric oncology expert to-
a. learn from the experts and each other
b. to share and showcase your work or some aspect of it,
c. To network with like minded organisations , the doctors , and parents and survivors,
d. to formally create and join the community of paediatric oncology support services and
e. to formally advocate for change in our chosen cause : childhood cancer.
The 3 days starts with Day 1 as a pre-conference on Paediatric Psycho-Oncology followed with a 2 day conference including panel discussions, award winning abstract presentations, posters, NGO Management skill sessions and exciting keynote speeches with an international & national faculty.
The target audiences for this conference are Decision Makers in Social Support Organisations, Interested individuals, philanthropists and Donors, Doctors, Scientists, Researchers & Treating Centres committed to Social Support, Outreach, and Treatment Supportive Care. We will be having both National & International Faculty/Speakers and will also be sharing faculty/ sessions with PHOCON as well.
Your participation & support towards this would be most welcome and further add to our journey together in bringing about Change for Childhood Cancer in India. We welcome your feedback and guidance.
