Cancer Awareness Conference and First Practitioners Meet

on 17th May 2008 at DAK Bungalow, Sopore

Hakim Sanaullah Cancer Centre recently conducted the first ever Rural Cancer Conference at Dak Bungalow, Sopore. The conference titled 'Cancer Awareness Conference & First Practitioners Meet' brought in medical fraternity from across North Kashmir and also guest faculty from outside J&K. It focussed on the local issues faced by doctors in managing cancer and its related complications. The conference, the first of its kind in the region, was a General-Physician oriented symposium aimed at updating the practitioners about recent advances and also creating a dialogue amongst authorities and physicians to help solve some of the logistical problems that crop up so often in cancer management in the region. In particular, one such development was the agreement by the authorities to provide morphine to district hospitals for cancer palliation. The Centre aims at conducting such conferences on a regular basis, Allah Willing.
