The Caribbean Association of Oncology and Hematology (CAOH) founded by Dr. Peter Bovell in 2008, re-incorporated in July 2017, this NGO focuses on developing the field of Haem-Oncology in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean.

The Hyatt Regency Hotel will be the home again to the 8th CAOH Conference with the theme for 2018 being “Oncology: Charting a new course for the Caribbean” and will focus on group discussions from Caribbean stakeholders to develop a consensus document on Cancer Care and Control. This conference will also be co-hosting the launch of the first National Comprehensive Cancer Network’s (NCCN) Harmonized Guidelines for the Caribbean. The NCCN C.E.O., Dr. Robert Carlsen and his team will be present at this event to jointly lunch the publications of the guidelines for the following cancer types: Breast, Cervical, Prostate, Colon, Lung Cancer and Multiple Myeloma in 2018.

This year, CAOH’s objectives for hosting this auspicious International Conference are:
1. The development of resource stratified guidelines for the Caribbean in collaboration with NCCN.
2. To build capacity to conduct clinical trials in the Caribbean in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute/ National Institute of Health.
3. To formulate a consensus document based on 360-degree stakeholder feedback to advocate for improved Cancer Care and Control.

The Trinidad and Tobago Registered Nurses Association (TTRNA) supports this ambitious initiative and gives our support at reaffirm the commitment made in September 2007, at the signing of the landmark Declaration of Port of Spain by Regional Governments, with the primary objective of combating Non-Communicable diseases including cancer.

TTRNA expects all Oncology and Haematology Nurses to be present at this conference as it will be an opportune time to keep current with the latest in the field of cancer research and cancer care guidelines. As nurses are the ones who deliver many of the treatment modalities, nurses should also appreciate getting involve into clinical research as crucial in improving how the varying treatments we deliver impacts our patients.
