Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to announce the formation of IASCC (Indian Association of Supportive Care in Cancer). The IASCC is an affiliate organization of MASCC, dedicated to improve the supportive care in India. The inception of the organization was declared last September during Best of MASCC by Dr. Sudeep Gupta in the presence of Dr. Matti Aapro (past president MASCC). This organization is completely focused on supportive care required during cancer directed therapies. Other important aspects would be to support good quality research in the same field.

On August 29th & 30th, we are organizing the Best of MASCC 2020, India Conference. This MASCC/IASCC annual meeting will be held at Hotel ITC Grand Central, Parel and Tata Memorial Hospital, Parel, Mumbai. The exciting program planned for this conference will have presentations, workshops, and discussions on treatments and techniques for minimising the symptoms of cancers and side effects of cancer directed and related therapy. The conference also includes a diverse array of presentations on the psychological, social, and economic dimensions of cancer diagnosis and treatment.

The meeting will feature plenary sessions and parallel sessions for doctors and para-medics associated with supportive care in cancer.

We request you to collect your data or prepare research protocols for quality studies in the field of supportive care. There are many awards and MASCC memberships apart from educational grants for the researchers.

We look forward to having your active participation in this niche field of oncology.
