Closing the cancer care gap for the South Asian community

22 May 2024
Keynote Theatre | The Future Cancer Workforce Focus Day

Tackling key challenges and barriers to accessible cancer care for the South Asian community through co-morbidities, culture and cultural conditioning, and colonisation of medicine.

  • Illustrating the issues via sharing our personal breast cancer stories 
  • Common co-morbidities impacting breast cancer in South Asians including metabolism and diabetes, diet and lifestyle, heart/ cardiovascular health
  • Culture and cultural conditioning - how this impacts our behaviour around health - hair, marriageability, fertility, 
  • Colonisation of medicine - cardiotoxic treatment and genomics, and how we can easily provide prosthetics, garments and wigs that match our skin tone and hair
  • What can HCP and cancer organisations do to be more inclusive
