Experts’ conclave to pave holistic approach to cancer management
Apollo Indraprastha Hospitals joined hands with MediSage to organize a one-of-its-kind ‘Apollo Cancer Conclave—Insights from Our Experts’ in Delhi. The aim of this meet was to throw light on various forms of cancer, along with their management options with the expertise of specialist doctors at the Apollo Hospitals. Cancers with the highest mortality and morbidity rates in India—namely, breast cancers, cancers of the head and neck, along with gynaecological, haematological and gastrointestinal cancers—were discussed. The experts focused on prevention of these cancers with the latest advancement in technologies for detection of the disease with the help of tools that already exist.
Unlike a monologue, this exciting conclave was wholly interactive and involved direct interaction with the delegates through a panel discussion. While the panel of experts discussed physically with delegates in Delhi, virtual delegates from across the country gained the benefit of interacting with the expert panel with the help of MediSage.
MediSage is a global knowledge platform ‘by doctors, for doctors’, which helped the conclave get more visibility and virtual viewership. This allowed last-mile doctors to gain insights from the experts of the panel of Apollo doctors.
The panel discussion not only focused on the strategic approach to prevent, diagnose and manage cancers, but also helped doctors gain in-depth knowledge to embellish their clinical practice. Management of cancer patients is a combination of surgery with chemotherapy and radiation therapy and this Apollo Cancer Conclave was very effective in re-emphasizing the importance of all specialties joining hands in the management of cancer patients for a better clinical outcome.
Speaking on this joint venture, Abhishek Ghosh, Co-founder & Director, MediSage, said, “We believe that medical practitioners play a significant role in identifying cancer at an early stage to slow down the high incidence across multiple age groups today. We are overjoyed as Apollo Hospitals—with a strong and established foundation across the nation and is a pioneer in knowledge dissemination—has created a comprehensive, yet lucid, program with stellar experts to benefit the MediSage doctors’ community at large.”
