The Binaytara Foundation Cancer Center (BTFCC) has announced the dates for its 5th annual International Cancer Congress (ICC 2023), which will be held March 17-18, 2023.
The International Cancer Congress is an educational meeting intended to improve the care of cancer patients in South Asia by educating cancer care providers about the latest developments in the field of cancer, and their applications in the local context. This international oncology conference features renowned faculty from the United States and Nepal.
The BTFCC’s 4th International Cancer Congress was held on April 16, 2022. It featured a breast cancer session, several general oncology sessions, an abstract session, a keynote address on communication, and the award ceremony. Various national and international speakers presented their studies on key cancer topics. Physicians, MBBS practitioners, and paramedics in the field of cancer care attended the conference.
ICC 2022 was also an opportunity for BTFCC to recognize the skill, dedication, and hard work of several cancer care professionals. The Young Scientist award was presented to Dr. Nirajan Subedi from Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital for the abstract, “Post-Operative Pancreatitis as a Predictor of Post-Operative Pancreatic Fistula in Patients Following Pancreaticoduodenectomy in a University Hospital in Nepal.” Dr. Subedi also presented the paper.
Meanwhile, the Staff of the Year award was presented to Mrs. Ruchika Shrestha for her hard work and dedication to improving patient care. Mrs. Shrestha has been working with the BTFCC since its inception in December 2018. She communicates well with patients and their families to understand their socio-economic aspects while also making them feel comfortable emotionally, which strengthens the bond between patient and care professionals. She manages and teaches new nursing staff, contributing to better coordination.
