ANZHNCS Developing Nations Visitor Scheme

imageDeveloping Nations Visitor Scheme – Amount on offer: $5,000

Introduction

This grant is awarded to a Doctor, Allied Health or Nursing professional (with a relevant higher degree in Oncology or similar) from a developing nation with an interest in head and neck cancer.  The applicant is expected to attend the Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM), can organise a visit to another Head and Neck Cancer centre, and is invited to present a paper on life and work in their hospital and Head and Neck Cancer in their society. 

The ANZHNCS Developing Nations Visitor Scheme will provide the recipient with funding to assist with the payment of the ASM registration fee, airfares and accommodation and any other incidentals. To assist in planning, the Society can pay upfront for the ASM registration and accommodation costs, and organise transfer flights within Australia and New Zealand to attend other Head and Neck Centres during the visit if required. All costs would be deducted from the grant funds, and the recipient would receive the balance remaining after the ASM (all receipts are required for reconcilliation purposes). An alternative is for the the recipient to pay for all costs upfront, and provide all receipts to the Society for reconcilliation purposes. Once this process is finalised, the funds would be transferred to the recipient following conclusion of the ASM. 

Following the meeting the grant recipient is required to provide a report summarising the contribution the grant has made to their personal and/or professional lives. 

The purpose of these grants is to engender better health outcomes for patients with Head and Neck cancer by providing learning opportunities in Australia and New Zealand Hospitals.
