COSA 2015November 17 - 19, 2015 The Federation Conference and Exhibition Centre Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart


We would like to thank all delegates, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and partners for their participation and support in the COSA 2015 ASM.

COSA’s ASM is considered the premier gathering of cancer health professionals in our region each year. Delegates to the meeting include clinicians and researchers representing medical and radiation oncologists, cancer surgeons, nurses, pharmacists and allied health workers. COSA is proud to announce that the 42nd ASM will be held in Hobart at the Grand Chancellor Hotel.

Our theme for 2015 is “Rare cancers – Common goals”.

A rare cancer is defined as a cancer type found in less than 6 per 100,000 Australians per year, and less common cancers found in between 6 and 12 per 100,000. With almost 125,000 cases of cancer being diagnosed in Australia each year, and 42,000 Australians diagnosed with a rare or less common cancers, making up about 30% of all diagnoses in a year (sounding less rare and more common!).

So we think it’s time for COSA to concentrate on this burgeoning area of concern for health professionals, the system we work in, and importantly our patients and the wider community. 

We are delighted to be the co-convenors for the 2015 conference in Hobart. We are both medical oncologists working at the Royal Hobart Hospital and are dedicated to the continued professional development of not just oncologists but all COSA members and delegates.

We both really enjoy living and working in Hobart, so we hope you’ll make the trip south and perhaps enjoy some personal time before or after the conference too.
