ABU DHABI, 27th November, 2022 (WAM) — The 10th edition of the Emirates Oncology Conference (EOC 2022), concluded on a high note in Abu Dhabi as the leading oncology event in the region and focused on revealing the latest advancements made in cancer research, education, and technologies in the field from around the world.

The event, which is hosted by Abu Dhabi Health Services (SEHA), is committed to aid and follow through on the UAE’s pledge to provide its residents with world-class health care and ensuring that medical professionals receive continuous medical and professional education at the highest international standards.

Yousef Altheeb Al Ketbi, Group Chief Operations Officer at SEHA, and Chair of the 10th EOC Conference, stated, “For a decade, this conference has witnessed the conglomeration of some of the most distinguished experts in the field of Oncology and has gained global repute as a leading forum to discuss the latest findings in cancer research and to improve patient outcomes, which is still one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. We are privileged to be organising such a monumental event that will further cancer research within the UAE.”

Around 4,000 people from over 40 countries were in attendance over the three-day period, from which 65 percent of those reside in the UAE and 35 percent visited from the USA, Europe, Middle East, and GCC.

EOC hosted around 150 speakers from the USA, UK, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, India, Pakistan, Philippines, Malaysia, Canada, and many more including regional countries such as Jordan, KSA, Oman, Bahrain, Lebanon, Egypt, and UAE and so much more.

Approximately 25 abstract papers were presented through oral and poster presentations and the best 14 of those were selected to be published in a conclusive medical journal as a result of EOC 2022, proving the effectiveness of the conference for revealing groundbreaking research.

Most notably, a new initiative was set forth during EOC to establish the consensus for management of locally advanced bladder cancer in the GCC region. This consensus will also be published in medical journals and sets the accord for all GCC nations.

EOC also witnessed the revealing of genetic analysis and testing. This innovative process allows doctors the possibility to detect cancer within a patient before it happens based on pre-existing and historical conditions, as well as to tailor the treatment for cancer patients to attain the best results.

The final day of EOC provided a wide-range of informative sessions that included Paediatric Oncology, Genitourinary, Gastrointestinal, and Educational Sessions that involved Multidisciplinary Case-Based Discussions.

Special sessions titled “Meet the Experts” were also held to give the public the opportunity to communicate directly with oncology experts in an open discussion format.
