EAU Update on Prostate Cancer
Unfortunately, the 4th EAU Update on Prostate Cancer in Madrid is cancelled in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The health of all participants and faculty is of course the highest priority. PCa20 was scheduled to take place 12-13 September but the scientific committee has decided to explore online options for 2020 and reschedule the meeting for 2021. New dates will be announced shortly. All participants have been contacted by e-mail about their registrations.
Insight and skilled decision-making are crucial in prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis and treatment. The 4th EAU Update on Prostate Cancer, to be held from 12-13 September in Madrid, Spain, addresses this challenge with an expert-led meeting that is both comprehensive and compact.
Unique with its fully interactive format, prostate cancer experts from across Europe will challenge participants with a critical assessment of standard and the latest prospective PCa therapies. In collaboration with the European School of Urology (ESU), the two-day programme will examine key topics in optimal PCa management.
From insightful overviews to point-by-point assessment of treatment strategies, expert lecturers will take participants through a range of issues on current guidelines, clinical dilemmas, and medical management. Stock knowledge will be tested against the impact of new drug research and evolving use of imaging technologies. With incisive, to-the-point commentary, the faculty will tackle systemic treatments, metastatic disease, drug sequencing and complications management.
Pre- and post-meeting testing will be required for a thorough assessment of the participants’ PCa knowledge. While emphasising evidence-based medicine, interactive breakout sessions will explore difficulties in diagnosis, the use of imaging tools, and effective follow-up strategies. Case discussions and topic-focused sessions led by a rotating faculty will aim for in-depth inquiry into contentious issues such as local salvage therapy, active surveillance and managing recurrent disease.
PCa20, as part of the onco-urology educational series organised by the EAU, is an opportunity in continuing medication education that responds to cancer and healthcare professionals looking for a practical, comprehensive and incisive update.
