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.
Since the inaugural lecture series, the planning committee has been working to create a compelling program that explores and discusses rapidly evolving technologies and therapeutics. The upcoming series will allow participants to learn about the many new advances in systemic therapy, radiation therapy and survivorship care.
Key topics that will be discussed for the 2018 lecture series:
- 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
These topics and more will be presented in various panels, case studies and plenary sessions. After completing this series, participants will be able to identify opportunities and solutions that can be integrated in current management options and advance patient care further.
MyGOALS will be held on September 28th, 2018. 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.
