At Sydney Vital, we believe communities can have an impact on, and help to guide our research. Our clinicians and scientists conduct research studies to find better ways to prevent and treat cancer. An important role for Sydney Vital is to disseminate these research findings to the wider community. This is why we have created a cancer research promotion event called ‘Vital Talk’, which aims to present the latest cancer treatments, prevention and research to the local community.

Our first event on our bid to circulate our clinicians and scientists research findings will be in collaboration with Probus Club Crows Nest.

The session provides the opportunity to hear about clinical Trials (introduction, discussion of types, phases, importance, role of investigators, role of consumers) and the clinical trials that have been conducted through ImPACCT for palliative care and cancer symptom trials.

Due to limited space, there are no tickets available for the event however a live-streaming webcast will be available via (Meeting ID: 998-007-477)
