Welcome to the
SASMO Congress

The South African Society of Medical Oncology (SASMO) and its Executive Committee invites you to attend The 2018 SASMO Congress to be held on 16 -18 November 2018, Durban International Convention Centre (ICC) Durban, South Africa.

The primary objective of this symposium is to develop and enhance the collaboration between all health care professionals involved in managing cancer patients. The theme of this year’s congress will be “Multidisciplinary approach to Cancer Care” thus encouraging all our colleagues to maximise the beneficial effect of multimodal treatments for their patients. There is often a great deal of overlap in various oncology aspects of care and survivorship support that our patients require, it is therefore with great pleasure that we are collaborating on this years conference with our colleagues from the South African Stem Cell Transplantation Society (SASCeTS), gynaecology colleagues in the growing field of Oncofertility with an international speaker from the Oncofertility Consortium, and the South African Society of Oncology Pharmacists (SASOPh)

The format of the congress will focus on educational sessions, a plenary session and proffered papers hoping to highlight controversies, encourage debate and reinforce the benefits of evidence based medicine.

We look forward to welcoming you at the 2018 Congress!

Sincerely yours,

Prof. Georgia Demetriou, Congress Organizer, EXCO Member and Treasurer
South African Society of Medical Oncology

Dr Adam Nosworthy, Congress Organizer, EXCO Member
