9th Behavioural Research in Cancer Control Conference

Thursday 20 December, 2007

The Cancer Council Victoria is proud to be hosting the 9th Behavioural Research in Cancer Control Conference, to be held in Melbourne on 9 to 11 April 2008.

Behavioural Research in Cancer Control (BRCC) Conferences have been held every two years since 1988 and provide an opportunity for members of the different behavioural research groups attached to Cancer Councils, Universities and other research institutes across Australia to meet, share ideas and encourage collaboration.

The BRCC Conference aims specifically to promote the exchange of ideas and expertise in the area of behavioural research in cancer; minimise duplication of research efforts; foster cross-state research and program initiatives; provide a networking opportunity for program staff and researchers to increase relevance of research and evidence base for Cancer Council programs.

For the 9th BRCC Conference, we are planning an exciting and engaging program, offering information and discussion sessions on a range of preventive health behaviours related to cancer control, psychosocial health and supportive care of cancer patients and carers, methodological research issues and translation of research to policy.
