Annual Meeting on Supportive Care in Cancer

Each year, MASCC joins with the international Society of Oral Oncology (ISOO) to convene the MASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting. This multinational and multidisciplinary conference is an opportunity for professionals and trainees from diverse fields to share their knowledge and collaborate on research and the best new practices in supportive cancer care. Topics address new treatments and technologies to manage the symptoms of cancer and side effects of therapy, as well as psychosocial and economic concerns. Annual events include plenary and parallel sessions, multidisciplinary workshops, e-posters, study group meetings, and social events. The meeting is open to anyone with an interest in improving supportive care and quality of life for people with cancer and cancer survivors.


2020 MASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting, SEVILLE, SPAIN, 25-27 June, 2020 is postponed to 24-26 June 2021 in the same location - Seville, Spain. Our 2021 meeting was originally planned for Yokohama, Japan, as a joint meeting with the Japanese Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (JASCC). We are very thankful to our partners at JASCC for their understanding of this situation; we plan to hold the meeting in Japan in another year. The 2022 meeting is still planned for Toronto.

These abstracts are chosen from the top 10 percent of all abstracts submitted to the annual meeting.
