The International Cancer Education Conference is designed to support cancer educators to learn best practices for cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. Our overarching goal is to increase positive outcomes for cancer patients/survivors, their families, and the general public. Effective evidence-based education is pivotal in developing cancer scientists, advancing cancer curriculum in professional health education programs, and in achieving optimal outcomes for cancer patients/survivors. The use of best practices in professional, patient and family, and public education contributes significantly to the ongoing national and international efforts to reduce cancer morbidity and mortality.
The goal of the ICEC is to facilitate interdisciplinary research and practice/program collaborations among cancer researchers, educators, and students on a national and global level. Educational models, programs and research strategies will be presented to support the development of evidence-based practices in the field of cancer education. The theme for the 2020 international meeting is "Using Cancer Education to Address Social Determinants of Health."
