Southern Melbourne Integrated Cancer Service (SMICS) 2019-20 Annual Forum – Ethical Considerations

Southern Melbourne Integrated Cancer Service (SMICS) 2019-20 Annual Forum – Ethical Considerations

Join clinical experts as they discuss the impact COVID-19 has had on the cancer workforce and future ethical considerations in cancer care. Featuring Keynote Speaker and Clinical Ethicist, Professor Clare Delaney and a special presentation on the pancreatic cancer resectability project by Dr Charles Pilgrim and Associate Professor Samantha Ellis.

COVID-19 has changed our lives irrevocably. Globally tens of thousands of people have lost their lives and many more have been hospitalised. We expect that Victoria’s health care workers are likely to encounter moral distress, anxiety and regret arising from ethical challenges in cancer care. We will be joined in the discussion on the impact of patients presenting with later stage disease, and the capacity of the health care system to cope with the expected surge in cancer diagnoses by our Keynote Speaker and Clinical Ethicist, Professor Clare Delaney.

Later in the program we present the pilot of a newly developed radiological report to define resectability of non metastatic pancreatic ductal adenocarcenoma (PDAC). Join Dr Charles Pilgrim and Associate Professor Samantha Ellis as they take us through this exciting new project and discuss how accurate and consistent reporting of disease stage and resectability status will reduce variation in care and outcomes for patients with pancreatic cancer.
