MYGOALS Conference set to explore Advancements in Gynecologic Oncology

It is estimated, that over a million new cases and a half million deaths annually, are due to gynecological cancers worldwide. Since each gynecologic cancer has distinct risk factors, signs, symptoms and prognosis, it is important for the gynecologic oncology community to develop a better understanding of the current challenges, needs and developments in this area. CPD’s second annual Multidisciplinary Gynecologic Oncology Annual Lecture Series provides the opportunity to identify options and solutions that can be integrated to advance clinical care.

As this is a very inspiring time in the field of gynecologic oncology, since our last lecture series, program directors and planning committees have been working together to create a compelling program that explores and discusses the rapidly evolving technologies and therapeutics. We are thrilled to invite you to participate in learning about the many new advances in systemic therapy, radiation therapy and survivorship care, presented by Canadian experts across gynecologic oncology disease sites.

Key topics that will be discussed for the 2018 conference include:

  • Diagnosis and Workup of Cervical Malignancies
  • Rare Gynecologic Tumors
  • Advances in Surgical Management in Gynecologic Oncology
  • Emerging Systemic and Targeted Treatments in Gynecologic Oncology
  • Advances in Radiation Oncology for Gynecologic Cancers
  • Survivorship and Palliative Care for Patients with Gynecologic Cancers

In gathering the gynecologic oncology community together to learn about these topics and contribute to various panels, case studies and plenary sessions we can identify opportunities and solutions that can be integrated in current management options for patients with gynecologic cancers and advance patient care further.

Healthcare professionals and researchers in gynecologic cancer, surgery, radiation, medical oncology, pathology and genetics are encouraged to attend. For more information and to register visit http://www.cpd.utoronto.ca/mygoals.
