Cardiovascular Oncology


Cardio-oncology is a cardiovascular subspecialty with a multidisciplinary integrative approach for the management of cancer patients. It came about because of the increasing number of cancer survivors brought about by improved anti-cancer therapy which also resulted in an increase in cardiovascular complications. It has become quite challenging for the clinician to strike a balance between the treatment of the cancer versus maintaining the efficacy of such treatment in the face of cardiovascular morbidities. Thus the need to have a multidisciplinary approach to address these concerns involve not only oncologists and cardiologists but also radio-oncologists, nurses, pharmacists as well as other allied health workers.

The council on cardiovascular oncology, having been around for only 2 years, is currently led by Dr. Sue Ann Locnen with its members numbering around 35 cardiologists spread all over the Philippines. Its mission is to  promote optimal cardiovascular care of cancer patients in the Philippines with an aim in becoming an Asia Pacific leader in the cardiovascular care of cancer patients by 2028.
