Event Overview
Welcome message:

It is a great pleasure for me to invite you to attend the Sixth Pan-Pacific Nursing Conference and First Colloquium on Chronic Illness Care to be held in March 2016 in Hong Kong. This conference is also one of the key events to celebrate our School’s 25th Anniversary in 2016. 

The Pan-Pacific Nursing Conference hosted by the Nethersole School of Nursing at The Chinese University of Hong Kong is a regular, yet important event in the international nursing conference calendar. Since it was firstly organised in 1999, the conference has been serving as an excellent platform to pool the efforts of nursing and healthcare professionals across cultures and disciplines to promote health and well-being of people in the Pan-Pacific region and beyond.

For the upcoming conference, considering that health and social care services are undergoing transformation in response to the escalating burden of chronic illnesses arising from a rapidly ageing global population, the theme “Achieving transformational and sustainable development in health and social care” is particularly chosen. The conference aims to assemble local, mainland and overseas service providers, academics and researchers to discuss and explore strategies and initiatives for transformational and sustainable development in health and social care services in both local and global contexts.

Internationally renowned experts in the field will be invited as keynote speakers to share their insightful views and experiences. Concurrent sessions and professional workshops will be conducted for participants to dialogue on a wide range of theme-related topics and to identify health and social care innovations for maximizing benefits to patients and the community.

Apart from sharing and discussion, the conference also provides a valuable opportunity for participants to meet old and new friends and to extend networks for academic and professional collaborations. Overseas participants may also take this opportunity to explore the beauty and attractions of Hong Kong – a dynamic and vibrant city where western-style modernity and centuries-old Chinese tradition are sophistically integrated.

Once again, I cordially invite you to attend this conference and look forward to seeing you in 2016.

Professor Joseph J. Y. SUNG, SBS, JP

Vice-Chancellor and President, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Mok Hing Yiu Professor of Medicine

Professor Joseph Sung is the Vice-Chancellor and President of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), holding also the Mok Hing Yiu Professor of Medicine. Professor Sung’s research interests include gastro-intestinal bleeding, Helicobacter pylori infection, peptic ulcer, hepatitis B, and colorectal cancer. Professor Sung and his research team proved the relationship between H. pylori and peptic ulcer diseases. They were the first in demonstrating that a course of antibiotics lasting a week can cure H. pylori infection and successfully treat peptic ulcers and minimise their relapse. At the same time, Professor Sung and his research team pioneered the use of endoscopic treatment for ulcer bleeding to reduce the need for operative surgery. These research results have a major impact on and have changed the practice of gastroenterology worldwide. Professor Sung also led a group of experts from 15 Asia-Pacific countries to launch colorectal cancer screening research in 2004, and has laid down clear guidelines and promoted colorectal screenings in the region. Because of his work in cancer screening and prevention, he was honoured by the Prevent Cancer Foundation of the United States with the Laurel Award. He has published over 790 full scientific articles in the foremost journals and reviewed more than 15 prestigious journals. His contributions to the advancement of medical sciences and academic development have been recognised with awards such as the Outstanding Staff and Team Award (Hospital Authority of Hong Kong, 1998), Eminent Scientist of the Year 2003 (International Research Promotion Council, 2003), the Vice-Chancellor’s Exemplary Teaching Award (CUHK, 2003), Silver Bauhinia Star (Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government, 2004), Cheung Kong Achievement Award (Ministry of Education, The People’s Republic of China (PRC) and Li Ka Shing Foundation, 2006), The Most Outstanding Contribution Award (Clinical Therapeutics) (Food and Health Bureau, HKSAR Government, 2007), and the State Scientific and Technological Progress Award (Second-Class Award) (National Office for Science and Technology Awards, PRC, 2007). He is an Honorary Member of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. In 2009, his seminal lectures on peptic ulcer bleeding won him the Marshall and Warren Lecture Award. In the same year, he has also won the Endoscopy Award of the German Society of Gastroenterology. In 2011, he was elected as an Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and, in 2013, he was presented with the World Outstanding Chinese Award.

Chan is one of the leading nurse scientists and she tested and developed nurses’ interventions to change smokers’ behaviour, and to protect children from exposure to secondhand smoke. She was one of the top funded nursing researchers in Hong Kong, and has published extensively in international journals on nursing, tobacco control, and public health. She consults widely nationally and internationally and has been invited by the World Health Organisation to provide advice and leadership on their tobacco control initiatives. Her current position involves supporting the Secretary for Food and Health in the political work involved in the setting of policy objectives and priorities on agriculture, fisheries, food safety, veterinary public health, environmental hygiene, medical and health, formulating policy and legislative initiatives to achieve the agreed objectives and priorities, and related implementation issues.
