National Conference

National Conference 2022 | Early Detection and Survivorship

In a few short months, the District Health Boards that a generation has grown up with will make way for the new Health NZ and Māori Health Authority agencies. For those of us working in the cancer space, we can reflect on Te Aho o Te Kahu, the Cancer Control Agency, finishing its first full calendar year as part of our health landscape. In addition, the “once in a generation” review panel of PHARMAC will have released its findings.

This is an important time, as Aotearoa New Zealand’s standard of care for men with prostate cancer in terms of access to diagnostic procedures, treatments and medicines currently falls behind that of other comparable countries. With the changes in our health system comes the opportunity for all of us to make a positive difference. Against this background, we have assembled an outstanding programme of world-leading experts to share their insights with you, at National Conference.

When: 8:45 am – 4:00pm, Sunday 28 August 2022

Where: Te Papa, Wellington

  • Prof Dr Hendrik Van Poppel, European Association of Urology | Prostate cancer early detection guidance for the EU
