Description

Chairs: R. Eeles, UK - W.D. Foulkes, CA - M. Robledo, ES - H. Vasen, NL


The ESO, CNIO and NRCO Conference on Familial Cancer aims to present the advances in this field from a multidisciplinary point of view. Familial cancer has become an important challenge for oncologists, geneticists, molecular biologists, and other professionals, due to its implications not only at individual but also at the familial and social level. Along the last years, new approaches have allowed to increase our knowledge about the genes responsible for familial cancer, as well as their biological functions, which is essential to find an appropriate treatment in each case. The next generation sequencing is extensively used in the search of causal mutations, but it represents a new challenge regarding the interpretation of variants, many of which must be classified as of unknown significance. Biannually the Conference brings together leading basic and translational researchers and clinicians involved in the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of patients with familial cancer. These meetings help to establish connections among professionals that in turn promote progress in the understanding and treatment of these diseases. Besides the lectures from international experts, young scientists can present their work as short lectures and posters. This format aims to facilitate extensive discussion of current issues and stimulate new ideas.

INSURANCE
The organisers bears no responsibility for ontoword events in relation to the participation in the Conference. Participants are advised to take out their own personal and travel insurance coverage.


CME ACCREDITATION CERTIFICATES
Participants will be entitled to receive a certificate of attendance at the close of the event by completing and submitting the on-line evaluation questionnaire.
The event has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the following CME activity for medical specialists. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). The evaluation of the event has been performed by the Accreditation Council of Oncology in Europe (ACOE) that acknowledged the quality of the scientific programme and its educational value. The event is designated for a maximum of 11 European CME credits (ECMEC). Through an agreement between UEMS and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
