【香港大學賽馬會癌症綜合關護中心服務啟動禮】​

在香港賽馬會慈善信託基金的慷慨支持下,香港大學李嘉誠醫學院(港大醫學院)成立了全港首間專為癌症而設的研究及服務中心──香港大學賽馬會癌症綜合關護中心(HKU JCICC),自2018年以來,已為15,313名患者提供服務。為癌症患者(1)提供治療後症狀管理的支援,(2)並提供個人化飲食和運動建議。​

香港大學賽馬會癌症綜合關護中心總監、港大醫學院公共衞生學院行為科學系副教授兼系主任藍詠德博士表示:「身體和心理症狀對癌症患者和康復者的健康有著深遠的影響,最終可能會影響他們的治療和康復效果。現在是時候改變我們對癌症、癌症患者及其康復過程的概念,應將癌症視為一種慢性疾病,而為癌症患者和康復者提供長期和持續的支援,可為他們的身心健康創造更明亮的前景。」​

港大醫學院院長、施玉榮伉儷基金教授(民眾健康)、公共衞生學院公共衞生醫學講座教授梁卓偉教授表示:「作為香港大學李嘉誠醫學院的『癌症登月計劃』,香港大學賽馬會癌症綜合關護中心開創了一個嶄新平台,將科學創新轉化為融合預防、診斷、治療、康復和紓緩的護理模式,以滿足癌症患者的身心需求。」​

作為本港首創的癌症綜合關護中心,香港大學賽馬會癌症綜合關護中心致力於填補癌症護理方面的長期服務空白,而癌症復康診所只是其服務範疇之一。香港大學賽馬會癌症綜合關護中心是港大醫學院在研究和知識交流方面的核心機構,以推進基於研究實證的三級癌症護理策略,也是為癌症患者、其家人和照顧者提供支援的先驅平台。根據香港大學賽馬會癌症綜合關護中心項目的研究結果,港大醫學院將能夠開發並改善本港給予癌症康復者的復康及支援護理計劃,以幫助受影響的患者恢復正常生活,並建立健康的生活方式。​

【Service Launch of HKU Jockey Club Institute of Cancer Care】​

With the generous support of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the LKS Faculty of Medicine of the University of Hong Kong (HKUMed) has established the Jockey Club Institute of Cancer Care (HKU JCICC) – the very first purpose-built cancer-specific research and service centre in Hong Kong, which has served 15,313 patients since 2018. HKU JCICC established the first community-based multidisciplinary cancer survivorship clinic to (1) provide support in managing post-treatment symptoms and (2) offer personalised diet and physical activity advice.​

‘Physical and psychological symptoms have a profound impact on the well-being of cancer patients and survivors, which may ultimately undermine the effectiveness of their treatment and recovery,’ said Dr Wendy Lam Wing-tak, Director of HKU JCICC; Associate Professor and Division Head, Division of Behavioural Sciences, School of Public Health, HKUMed. ‘It is time to change our concept about cancer, its patients and their recovery. Cancer should be seen as a chronic disease, while cancer patients and survivors should be given long-term and sustained support for a more robust outlook of health.’ ​

‘As HKUMed’s “cancer moonshot”, HKU JCICC provides a pioneering platform for translating scientific innovation into care models that incorporate prevention, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and palliation, in order to address the physical and psychological needs of cancer patients,’ said Professor Gabriel Leung, Dean of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong; Helen and Francis Zimmern Professor in Population Health and Chair Professor of Public Health Medicine, School of Public Health, HKUMed.​

First of its kind in Hong Kong, HKU JCICC is committed to filling a long-due service gap in cancer care, and the cancer survivorship clinic is only one of its initiatives. HKU JCICC is HKUMed’s lynchpin in research and knowledge exchange to advance evidence-based tertiary cancer care strategies, and a pioneering platform to provide supportive care to cancer patients, as well as their families and caregivers. The findings gathered through HKU JCICC projects will enable HKUMed to identify and optimise cancer survivorship programmes that are locally relevant and effective in supporting affected individuals to regain normal life and establish a healthy lifestyle.​
