Multinational Association for Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC)
The Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) is an international multidisciplinary organization dedicated to research and education in all aspects of supportive care for people with cancer regardless of the stage of their disease. Founded in 1990, MASCC now includes members from more than 70 countries.
COVID19 Statement One of the challenges COVID-19 has presented for MASCC has been the impossibility of safely holding our 2020 MASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting. In response, MASCC decided the only responsible course of action was to postpone to 24-26 June 2021 in the same location – Seville, Spain. We have asked members who planned to attend to please change or cancel any travel or hotel arrangements they made. MASCC intends to keep the program and all accepted oral presentations. Accepted abstracts will be carried over and honored for the June 2021 meeting. The three meeting themes of critical importance in supportive cancer care that were originally planned for the 2020 meeting will also be carried over to the 2021 meeting. These themes include: models of supportive care, cardio-oncology, and bioethics. There will also be sessions featuring digital health, palliative care, and cancer survivorship, as well as sessions reflecting the interests of MASCC/ISOO Study Groups.
Postponing the conference was a difficult decision. MASCC recognizes that the research and industry innovations presented at this conference ensure that attendees remain on the leading edge of supportive cancer care. Be assured we will be fully prepared to welcome you in 2021!
