Advanced Course on Multidisciplinary Management of Cervical Cancer

Overview

» From Guidelines to Daily practice

» Gain first-hand knowledge to Master Your Skills

» Stimulating Interactive Lectures to Broaden Your Perspective

 

The exclusive ESGO-ESTRO course aims to enable practical implementation of advanced concepts and techniques in daily practice focussing on the multidisciplinary management of locally advanced cervical cancer.

The 3-day course offers experienced multidisciplinary teams of gynaecological oncologists and radiation oncologists an overview of the evidence-based theory combined with live transmission of surgery and demonstration of brachytherapy skills.

The lectures will be followed by discussions based on case presentations to increase participant interaction and application of knowledge, including topics as alternative treatment modalities and multidisciplinary decision-making, as well as criteria for choosing the optimal treatment when certain modalities are not available.

 

Target audience

We highly encourage multidisciplinary teams of gynaecological oncologists and radiation oncologists to participate. This course is aimed at experienced gynaecological oncologists and radiation oncologists wishing to introduce high-level treatment of complex locally advanced cervical cancer, including both the primary tumour and recurrence. Course participants should have a specific interest in the implementation of advanced surgical and radiation techniques and interest in optimising the multidisciplinary approach in their practice.

 

Learning objectives

Improve knowledge and skills in the management of locally advanced cervical cancer.

Acquire a comprehensive update on the different types of therapeutic strategy of locally advanced cervical cancer.

Understand how to manage this disease and how to choose between the current therapeutic options.

Obtain first-hand knowledge from lectures and live procedures (surgery and brachytherapy) to enhance your experience.

Scientific Programme

The course programme offers a comprehensive overview of the multidisciplinary management of locally advanced cervical cancer focussing on:

+ Clinical staging and radiology

+ Potential indications for surgery

+ Chemoradiation and image-guided brachytherapy

+ Outcome after surgery and chemoradiation

+ Decision-making criteria for radical surgery versus chemoradiation

+ How to adapt according to non-availability of treatment

+  Management of recurrences, including indications and modalities of pelvic exenterations and re-irradiation

+  Difficult cases, including palliative surgery, and radical treatment for early metastatic disease.
