4) Helping support research in the area of gynaecological cancers
ASGO IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
The Australian Society of Gynaecologic Oncologists (ASGO) was established in 1986. The Society was incorporated in 2013 and obtained recognition as a Health Promotion Charity by the Australian Charity and Not-for-Profit Commission (ACNC) in 2014.
Our Society membership comprises 50 certified gynaecologic oncologists (cancer specialists) in Australia and New Zealand and several eminent associate members from related specialties such as radiation oncology, medical oncology and pathology.
For several years ASGO has offered two Fellowships on an annual basis –
- International Travelling Fellowship. This is to enable young gynaecologists from developing countries* who are interested in gynaecologic cancer to travel to and work in Australian centres of excellence.
- National Travelling Fellowship. This scholarship is to enable young Australian gynaecologic oncologists to visit overseas centres of excellence.
In 2014 ASGO supported a one-off Visiting Scholarships Program which funded nine young gynaecologists from neighbouring developing countries to attend the meeting of the International Gynaecologic Cancer Society in Melbourne and also attend major gynaecologic cancer units in Australia. This year ASGO is offering a Research Scholarship ($20k) in gynaecologic cancer.
The Society is committed to establishing a Clinical Quality Register and Database. Similar registers have been established by many other specialities including cardiac surgeons, urologists (prostate cancer) and colorectal surgeons. These registers collect and compare information on short and long term outcomes. There is abundant evidence both in Australia and overseas that such quality registers improve patient care and outcomes. The spin-offs from such a register will be improvement of the quality of the data on the clinical problems and facilitation of clinical research. You can be assured that health information will be collected and securely stored in line with national standards and only de-identified data will be transmitted to external bodies.
Our funds have been derived from annual subscriptions and sponsorship of our Annual Scientific Meetings but we need assistance to continue our scholarships and to develop the Quality Clinical Register and Database.
Please make your donation to “ASGO Foundation Account”. Donations of more than $2 are tax deductible and your gift of any size will be greatly appreciated. We will send you a receipt and appropriate acknowledgement.
ASGOs Charity ABN is 40 157 802 342.
I would be only too happy to discuss these matters with you directly. I do hope that you will be able to help us.
Your donation allows us to improve the care and outcomes for women suffering from gynaecological cancer, furthering the research and education of gynaecological cancer, and facilitate the establishment of a National Clinical Quality Register and Database to monitor how women are cared for.
