2021 International Cancer Education Conference

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 to Friday, October 8, 2021

The International Cancer Education Conference (ICEC) 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 2021 international meeting is "Integrating Culture, Spirituality, and Social Support into Cancer Education to Improve Health Equity."
