Reducing the risk: good practice and challenges when producing cancer prevention information, Jana Witt & Fiona Osgun
Producing public information about prevention is very challenging. When to mention ‘cancer’, how to talk about ‘lifestyle’ issues without blame, and how to talk about risk and uncertainty? Share your experiences and let’s identify best practice. Intended for those sending cancer prevention messages to the public or media (as well as researchers studying cancer/risk communication).
16:30 – 17:00
Plain, standardised packaging: a toolkit for action & learning from UK experience, Daniel Hunt
Cigarette packs in the UK will never look the same again. In May 2016 plain, standardised packaging of tobacco products began being introduced in the UK, the third country to do so, alongside France and Australia. The result of incredibly hard campaigning over many years, we want to share lessons and discuss challenges facing other countries.

1) Batik painting activities that will be held at our booth. Delegates can hands on to paint the printed design as in the Youtube and take home with them once it’s done up.
Malaysian Batik is a batik textile art produce in Malaysia, especially at the east coast of Malaysia (Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang). Malaysian batik are usually patterned with floral motifs with light colouring. The most popular motifs are leaves and flowers. It is also famous for its geometrical designs, such as spirals. The method of Malaysian batik making is rely heavily on brush painting method to apply colours on fabrics. The colours also tend to be lighter and more vibrant.
In line with the Malaysia concept, the Malaysian government is now endorsing Malaysian batik as a national dress to every level of the general population, by having local designers to create new batik designs which reflect the Malaysia idea.
2) Congkak competition
Congkak (pronounced CHONG-kak) is a game played on a wooden boat-shaped block with two rows of seven circular holes and two large holes at both ends called "home".
The game begins with seven game pieces (shells, marbles, pebbles or seeds) in each hole except "homes" which remain empty. Congkak requires two players. Each player controls the seven holes on his side of the board and owns the "home" to his left. The goal is to accumulate as many pieces in your own "home".
On a turn, a player removes all pieces from one of the seven holes on his side. He then distributes them clockwise --- one in each hole to the left of this hole --- in a process called sowing. Sowing skips an opponent's "home" but not a player's own "home".
If the last piece falls into an occupied hole then all the pieces are removed from that hole, and are sown in the same way (clockwise from that hole) in another round. This player's (current) turn ends when the last piece falls into an empty hole on the opponent's side.
• If the last piece sown falls into a player's own "home" then ...
... the player earns another turn, which can begin at any of the seven holes on his side.
• If the last piece sown falls into an empty hole on his side then ...
... the player captures all the pieces in the hole directly across from this one, on the opponent's side and put them (plus the last piece sown) in his own "home". If the opposing hole is empty, no pieces are captured.
The other player chooses which hole he wishes to start from, removes the pieces and sows them - one in each hole, clockwise from that chosen hole. If a player has no pieces on his side of the board when it is his turn, then he must pass.
The game ends when no pieces are left in any hole on both sides of the board. The players now count the number of pieces in their own "home" and see who has won.
Many cancer organisations work within the areas of research and patient support. However, with an ageing population and fewer resources, new ideas and new solutions are required. We need to think smarter and be on the lookout for better solutions, turning great ideas into great innovation for the benefit of tomorrow’s cancer patients.
How can we identify key stakeholders and ensure that crucial dots are connected? By visiting the Norwegian Cancer Society’s stand you can see –and experience - examples on how we work to give patients access to better care through new technology.

Let’s meet and discuss how we can work together to help more smokers quitting! After decades of moral and pedagogical campaigns that started the decrease, governmental institutions are now trying more active and innovative approaches like the Stoptoper event. Qweety naturally engages smokers’ relations, therefore it fits extremely well in this movement. It can be easily used as a complementary prevention tool proposed by drugstore or any other everyday’s health contact. Furthermore, Qweety provides a new marketing platform that associates your product with a healthier way of life and the people’s proud of succeeding in quitting their addiction.
The experts will provide their insights on redefining the value in cancer management and potential solutions to address some of the key issues such as quality of life, productivity and financial situation of cancer patients and caregivers.

10:30 - 11:00 INTERACTION ACROSS CARE SETTINGS
Varian Medical Systems will be presenting our Access To Care training solutions to bring radiation therapy to emerging countries and to increase utilization of this efficient modality. One part of our approach is the support of radiation therapy departments to improve their infrastructure to enable safe and effective use of Radiation Therapy equipment. The other part is to bridge knowledge gaps and to establish learning channels in order to increase human capital. Our Access To Care training programs are key in this. One tool we also use to achieve these goals is VERT. VERT is the flight simulator for Linear Accelerators (Linacs). With VERT you can see a life-sized, 3D visualisation of a Radiation Therapy Linear Accelerator. VERT provides a safe and non-pressured learning environment for training of radiation therapists, radiographers, therapists, dosimetrists and physicists. We are happy to discuss our Access To Care training programs in collaboration with the Vertual team to overcome the shortage of radiation therapy in many of the world’s growing and emerging countries.
Demonstrations of the Vertual system will be run every 30 minutes starting 5 minutes into each coffee and lunch break.
Stop by and join us at the Global Village booth 45 – 47.”
