Scientific Coordinator: W. Wysocki, PL

The redesigned format of the 2015 conference will enhance learning opportunities. Multidisciplinary interactive sessions will be opened also for non-oncologists dealing with cancer patients (radiologists, pathologists, GPs etc.).
The Conference offers plenary lectures delivered by the leading experts in the field, focusing on the state-of-the-art therapies and concluding with take-home messages. Lectures will cover the current standards of modern oncology, with special attention paid to practical aspects of effective cancer treatment. On 24 April an interdisciplinary session will be held for physicians dealing with early breast cancer – the issues from diagnosis to survivors’ support will be discussed. Additional sessions will focus on lung cancer –lectures will address modern and fast diagnosis as well effective problem-solving in daily practice . Other clinically-oriented issues will be discussed too.

On 25 April the leading European experts, invited jointly by ESO and Medycyna Praktyczna - Onkologia, will deliver lectures on practical clinical issues, such as management of patients with gastrointestinal malignancies, current strategies in gynecological oncology, management of advanced breast cancer (including novel therapeutic options), non-surgical treatment of renal cancer, basic maneuvers in advanced malignancies (i.e. thoracentesis and malignant ascites drainage), skin malignancies etc.

All lectures will be interactive. An electronic system will allow participants to answer the questions, solve the quizzes and join the speakers in clinical case discussions. The Conference will be entirely in English (or in other languages, but simultaneously translated into English).
