Welcome Message from the National Gynae- Oncology Conference 2017 Organising Committee Chairman
Selamat Datang dan Salam 1 Malaysia ( Welcome and 1 Malaysia Greetings)
It gives me great pleasure to welcome all of you for this Conference which had taken months of painstaking planning and execution , so that all of u would benefit from this Conference immensely. The Conference promises an exciting and excellent Scientific Programme. The Scientific Programme is exhaustive and covers almost all aspects of Gynaecological Oncology and Q & A sessions have been allocated to make the Symposiums as interactive as possible. Speakers from all over Asia Pacific who are experts in their respective fields will share their experience and expertise with all of you.
A breakout symposium for nurses as well as a symposium for the often overlooked but essential Allied Medical Fields have been included.
This is the Third National Gynae - Oncology Conference being organised . The First one being in September 2012. At that time the theme was “ The Current Trends” . The Second being in September 2015 with the theme of “Beating Gynaecological Cancers”.This time around the theme is “HOLISTIC APPROACH” whereby all relevant fields associated with Gynaecological Cancer management have been incoporated with the hope that this conference will go a long way in advocating Holistic Care for Gynaecological Cancers. The Logo chosen for the Conference reflects the “Jigsaw Puzzle” of relevant fields being put together to achieve Holistic Care in the management of Gynaecological Cancers.
I believe that this Conference , other than enriching your knowledge would also provide a good opportunity to make new acquaintances and renew old ones ,as well as providing a good platform for fraternity fellowship.
While in Kuala Lumpur , I hope many of you would visit the exciting places around. There are many places to shop as well as awesome food to satisfy your gastronomical desires.
I would like to record my sincere appreciation to all speakers , overseas and local for their participation in the Conference. I would also like to thank each and every member of the Organising Committee for all the hard work put in to make this Conference possible .I register my appreciation to the International Gynaecological Cancer Society ( IGCS ) , Malaysian Gynaecological Cancer Society ( MGCS ),Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Malaysia (OGSM ) , Ministry of Health Malaysia and Hospitals Selayang , Ampang and Kuala Lumpur. Last but not least I would like to thank the Platinum , Gold and all other Sponsors who have come forward to make this Conference a success.
It is hoped that this conference will be a benchmark for future conferences in addressing issues in providing Holistic Care in Gynaecological Oncology.
