Conference Information

21st – 23rd November 2019

How do we tailor the way we work based on the meaning each person’s cancer has for them?

What do we need to know about cancer type and site that will influence the approaches and resources we use?

What is the influence of cancer type on research funding, treatment advances, and political and community attention?

Oncology Social Work Australia and New Zealand (OSWANZ) Conference 2019 will provide a unique opportunity for oncology social workers and other health professionals working with people impacted by cancer to share research, practice models and innovative projects.  This year’s conference theme is designed to provoke thought and hearty discussion that will help social workers expand and share their knowledge and practice skills to support their practice in the ever growing field of cancer care.
