National Conference for Cancer Survivorship 2017

The Irish Cancer Society’s National Conference for Cancer Survivorship 2017 will take place on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 September at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. It is a national conference for cancer survivors, those who care for them, healthcare professionals, staff and volunteers from community-based cancer support services.

The aim of the conference is to provide information and support to enable people to live well after a cancer diagnosis.

The conference is an essential part of the Irish Cancer Society’s work. It is where the Society hears from cancer patients and seeks to understand and address the needs of the whole person, not just the cancer.

There will be a range of speakers who will share their experiences, stories and expert knowledge, including:

  • Dr Miriam O’ Connor, Medical Oncologist – Cancer Treatments Update 2017 
  • Ms Ruth Kilcawley, Senior Oncology & Haematology Dietician – Nutrition & Cancer, Sports Nutrition & Practical Demonstrations 
  • National Cancer Control Programme – The Patient Voice in Cancer Services 
  • Mr John Lonergan, Author and Public Speaker – Being Happy & Content 

There will also be practical sessions with art, writing, music, sleep, exercise, nutrition and  more.


This year’s conference is a two day event. Attendance is free of charge.
