Strengthening partnership for knowledge transfer in cancer management

HKSH Medical Group (HKSH) and UCLA Health have signed a Development Agreement to strengthen their partnership in knowledge transfer in cancer management. The two institutions share common academic and clinical interests and are committed to sharing expertise and best practices in cancer management.

Under the agreement, oncology health professionals from HKSH, including nursing leaders and allied health leaders such as dietitians, pharmacists, physiotherapists, radiographers and laboratory technicians, etc., will participate in a three-year programme at UCLA Health starting in November 2023.

The programme is designed to provide HKSH's oncology health leaders with the latest knowledge and best practices in cancer care through structured learning programmes, group projects, mentorship opportunities, as well as a clinical visit to UCLA Health.

The education programme will cover a wide range of cancers and oncology-related themes such as breast cancer, gynecological cancer, pediatric cancer, gastrointestinal/liver cancer, lung cancer, hematology oncology, orthopedic oncology, and research.
