The third edition of the ESO, ESMO and Rare Cancers Europe (RCE) advanced course on rare adult solid cancers was restructured two different levels of teaching to serve the specific educadtional needs of the health professionals.
Sarcomas, Rare Thoracic Tumors and Neuroendocrine Tumors, Rare Urogenital Cancers, Rare Female Genital Cancers, CNS Tumors, Digestive Rare Cancers, Head and Neck Cancers, Endocrine Gland Tumors, Rare Skin Tumors and Uveal Melanoma).
On the first day of the course, young oncologists will attend up to three perceptorship sessions that will provide an overview on the state-of-the-art treatment including the ESMO/EURACAN Clinical Practice Guidelines.
On the two following days, clinical oncologists will attend the course where the most recent advances in the multidisciplinary approach to the ten families of rare adult solid cancers will be addressed.
Given the success of the 2017 first edition, the Patient Advocates Course organized by RCE will run in parallel offering the floor for active exchanges.
These two initiatives are developed into the context of the European Reference Network on Rare Adult Solid Cancers, EURACAN. Many speakers and moderators will come from EURACAN, with the aim to serve the network.
