List of scheduled BOUNCE events

The BOUNCE partners seek to actively present the project activities and results to the research and clinical communities by organizing special events, as described by the following list. 


Opening event

The 1st BOUNCE Dissemination Event presenting the BOUNCE project took place at Helsinki on the 10th of July 2019 as off site event of HIMSS Europe 2019 & Health 2.0 2019 Event, providing opportunities for the researchers to engage with different stakeholders and general public. The event consisted of two independent sessions: one with orientation in patients’ perspective, psychological adaptation in cancer and resilience as a concept, and the second session had more technical orientation, concentrating on digital tools in cancer care and research, and modelling the resilience with data.

Also on July 12th 2019, Director Johanna Mattson from HUS Comprehensive Cancer Center and one of the PIs of BOUNCE gave a keynote speech in session engaging all the stakeholders including patients and families at HIMSS.

Second Dissemination Event: Cross-Cultural Perspective on Resilience in Breast Cancer

Where: Beit Maiersdorf, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mount Scopus, Jerusalem
When: Wednesday, September 18, 2019

One of the central issues of all modifiable lifestyle factors in building resilience is the socio-cultural context of the patient. Cultural and religious beliefs concerning the causes and outcomes of breast cancer can have a strong effect on breast cancer patients’ reactions to their illness and for their coping strategies. To introduce this important variable in the evaluation of resilience and the dissemination of the results of BOUNCE, 2 Dissemination events were designed in Jerusalem, Israel, focusing on the cultural elements of resilience and coping.

The event was attended by approximately 98 persons throughout Israel and Palestine, who have signed on via the internet. Our intention is to request permission and create a dynamic end-user group of health professionals from across Israel, who can engage themselves with the development and testing of the BOUNCE instrument.

The very informative and multicultural group of cancer survivors who participated in the round table discussion have given written permission to be taped and video during their discourse. The whole discussion will be examined using grounded theory, aiming at the production of an academic publication with the help of all BOUNCE team members who wish to participate. In addition, the patient messages will be analysed and delivered to the health care system for the potential use of the BOUNCE TOOL.

Since the speakers/participants in the event included mostly academics and NGOs including the Israeli Cancer Society, the possibility of a stronger involvement of Israeli health care professionals will be explored, so that they can take part at all stages of the project

Target audience: International Health and social care professionals, breast cancer patients, patient organizations, researchers, media.

Closing Event

The closing event will take place in Lisbon in month 40, aiming to disseminate outcomes of the project and promote the adoption of the project/ services on an ongoing basis once the project term has ended.
