About this Year’s Conference

The Global Cardio-Oncology Summit 2016 is co-hosted the Canadian Cardiac Oncology Network and the International CardiOncology Society. This year’s summit will be co-chaired by Dr. Sean Virani, Cardiologist at the Vancouver General Hospital, and Dr. Christine Simmons, Medical Oncologist at the BC Cancer Agency, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.


This summit models a leading-edge interdisciplinary approach to preventative and targeted medicine in cardio-oncology. This important field of study, aimed at understanding cardiac complications of oncology treatments, has gained a growing interest from a number of healthcare providers including oncologists, cardiologists, radiologists, nurses, pharmacists, and basic scientists.


The Global Cardio-Oncology Summit will feature the latest research and clinical guidelines in the multidisciplinary field of cardio-oncology. We invite abstract submissions for the Global Cardio-Oncology Summit on the prevention, management and treatment of cardiac complications related to oncology therapy.


This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada for 16.25 hours. This program has been reviewed and approved by the University of Ottawa, Office of Continuing Professional Development.
