It is our pleasure and honor to welcome you for 2nd NCHCON with theme of “palliative Care in Oncology” being jointly organized by National Hospital, Cancer Research Center (NCH) and Cancer Care Nepal (CCN) on 18th-19th March 2017 at Kathmandu, Nepal.
Palliative care is an essential component of the comprehensive cancer care. From the submissive beginning, due to compassion and the enthusiasm of Cicely Saunders, palliative care has now grown as a multimodality approach to specialized medical care and is one of the significant developments in the modern medicine.
As we all know around seventy percentage of the patient with cancer requires palliative care in various stage of their disease in variegated forms. So the goal would be to provide symptom relief, improve quality of life and help live a dignified life. Aside from pain and symptoms management, this conference will try to address the role of chemotherapy, target therapy, surgery and radiation therapy in palliative setting to ease the patient’s distress.
Apart from Nepal, we are expecting prominent speakers from Bangladesh ,India, Sri Lanka. and USA. . We honestly believe that this conference will definitely give us a broad horizon and guidance in managing cancer patients at home, hospice and hospitals.
