Dear Friends,


It gives us great pleasure to welcome you all to the 8th Global Chinese Breast Cancer Organizations Alliance Conference (8th GCBCOAC) to be held during 8th (Friday) till 10th (Sunday), October, 2021 in the Global Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Since the advent of this conference in 2006, as started by the Global Chinese Breast Cancer Organizations Alliance (GCBCOA) in Taichung, partnering with medical professional bodies in each of the conferences across all the cities, so far, there have been 7 successful runs of this great conference bringing together all Chinese breast cancer survivors, their carers and healthcare workers with knowledge exchange and support.

Hong Kong is honoured to be the hosting city for the 8th GCBCOAC which was postponed from May, 2020 due to the unanticipated COVID-19 global pandemic and its continuous challenge. Yet, with careful evaluation of the current public health situation and to balance the quest to keep the momentum, we have decided to press on to host the 8th GCBCOAC this October in the virtual format, and the hybrid format may follow depending on the further continuous assessment of the COVID-19 situation. However, we are committed to present to you a unique and special 8th GCBCOAC dedicated to all our Chinese breast cancer survivors, their carers as well as all healthcare workers with plenary sessions with most up-to-date topics in response to our local and global challenges, and also parallel sessions with the healthcare professional track and the breast cancer survivor track.

Our theme for the conference is “Building Lives with Miracles”! We look forward to your active participation and full support to build up new knowledge, build up new network with further collaboration and co-creation together! 

Stay safe and stay well, and looking forward to greeting you on-line and perhaps face-to-face for some of you in October, 2021!

 

 

親愛的朋友們,

 

​我們十分高興歡迎您們參加第八屆「全球華人乳癌組織聯盟大會」於今年「全球乳癌關注月」十月八日至十日在香港隆重舉行。

自全球華人乳癌組織聯盟發起第一屆「全球華人乳癌組織聯盟大會」於2006年在台中舉行後,先後在每次大會夥拍醫學專業團體在各城市成功舉辦這大型學術會議,過去已一共舉辦了七次大會活動,促進全球華人乳癌康復者、照護人及醫護人員知識互相交流及彼此支援。

「香港」很榮幸能成為第八屆「全球華人乳癌組織聯盟大會」主辦城市。由於過去一年新型冠狀病毒肆虐全球及帶來我們無限的挑戰,本屆「全球華人乳癌組織聯盟大會」亦從去年2020年順延一年舉行,籌備委員會在仔細考量最新疫情及公共衛生之最新情況後,亦同時體會乳癌病患康復者照顧的需要,我們一眾籌委會成員決定今年十月第八屆「全球華人乳癌組織聯盟大會」如期在香港舉行,大會將會在線上舉行,倘若疫情受控許可,部分實體會議會再容後公佈。

但我們一眾籌委已準備為大家送上適切全球華人乳癌康復者、照護人及醫護人員的講座分享主題,以裝備大家繼續正向面對各地及國際的挑戰,本屆大會設有全會及分別適切醫護人員和乳癌病患康復者之會議平台。

屆大會主題為「醫患同心 共創生命奇蹟」。我們誠意熱切期待您積極的參與及全力支持,共同建立新知識、建設新網絡、一起攜手合作,共同創建新希望!

​祝大家平安健康,期待本年十月在線上或香港見!

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Global Chinese Breast Cancer Organizations Alliance, I am delighted to welcome you to the 8th GCBCOA Conference which will take place between the 8-10th October 2021 in Hong Kong. 

The past year has been a year of unprecedented challenges, Covid-19 and its associated lockdown measures have exacted a heavy toll on the mental health of cancer patients. Our work to help and support patients has never been more important. 

This year’s conference will be centred on the theme “Building Lives with Miracles”. The conference will be packed with dynamic speakers and will bring together patients, survivors, volunteers, breast cancer experts as well as medical professionals from around the world to discuss the latest treatment trends, the management and development of patient organizations and address the needs of women with breast cancer.

We look forward to including you as one of our participants. Together we can build miracles!

親愛的朋友們,

我很榮幸代表全球華人乳癌組織聯盟歡迎您參加10 月8-10 號在香港舉行的第八屆「全球華人乳癌組織聯盟大會」!

過去一年新冠肺炎肆虐全球,社區隔離對癌症患者的情緒造成沉重的負面影響。 面對這嚴峻的挑戰,癌症支援工作更是格外的重要。

本屆會議主題「醫患同心,共創生命奇蹟」,將滙集各地的專家、醫護人員、乳癌康復者及義工,一起探討及分享乳癌的未來治療趨勢、病友組織管理及發展,以及乳癌患者的需要。

 

期待您與我們一起共創生命奇蹟!

On behalf of the organizing committee of the Global Chinese Breast Cancer Organizations Alliance (GCBCOA), in collaboration with the Hong Kong Breast Oncology Group (HKBOG), it is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 8th biennial conference of the GCBCOA.


There has been a dramatic increase in breast cancer incidence in major cities in South East Asia including Hong Kong in the past three decades. The GCBCOA was founded in 2006 with breast cancer patient groups coming from United States, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, Taiwan, etc. The HKBOG comprises key opinion leaders for breast oncology from public as well as private oncology centres in Hong Kong. Breast cancer care has now evolved into a multi-departmental and multi-disciplinary model which has led to improvement in patient care and also provides a fertile ground for clinical and translational research in treatment and prevention of the disease. In parallel with the improvement in patient outcome as a result of therapeutic advancement, focus has increased in means to enhance breast cancer survivorship. 


We hope the program will bring enlightenment to the theme of the conference, which aims at bonding the medical professionals and breast cancer patients and survivors to create the life miracles in bringing a better life quality full of support and happiness.

我謹代表全球華人乳癌組織聯盟(GCBCOA)與香港乳癌研究組(HKBOG)所成立的大會籌備委員會,歡迎您參加兩年一度的全球華人乳癌組織聯盟大會,本屆會議為第八屆。


全球華人乳癌組織聯盟(GCBCOA)於2006年成立,其乳腺癌病患者群組來自美國,中國,新加坡,香港,澳門,馬來西亞,印度尼西亞,俄羅斯,台灣等。香港乳癌研究組(HKBOG)由來自公共醫療界別和私立腫瘤中心的乳房腫瘤意見領袖(KOL, Key Opinion Leader) 組成。在過去的三十年中,包括香港在內,東南亞主要城市的乳腺癌發病率急劇上升,乳腺癌護理現已發展成為跨部門、跨學科的模型,改善了患者的護理水平,也為臨床治療和轉化研究治療以及疾病預防控制打好了根基。隨著治療進展,患者預後得到改善,也因而提高我們對乳腺癌生存者的關注。


我們希望此會議及主題能為您帶來啟發,藉著此會議將醫學專業人士與乳腺癌患者和康復者聯繫起來,在充滿支持和快樂的氛圍下提升生活品質,共同創造人生奇蹟。
