Clinical pre-conference session

We held a clinical pre-conference session on Wednesday, October 27th entitled "SNOMED CT Support for Cancer Care".

According to the Global Cancer Observatory, cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020. SNOMED CT as the leading global clinical terminology is ideally suited to support clinicians in the delivery of cancer care. Through the ontological basis of SNOMED CT, it is also well positioned to support cancer research activities internationally. The session brought together presenters who were directly involved in using SNOMED CT in different scenarios, to showcase some examples of how SNOMED CT is beginning to make a real difference in cancer care and research.
