PARADIGM SHIFTS IN GYNECOLOGIC ONCOLOGYLearning with friends
GUARDA IL VIDEO
Over the last years, some scientific publications dramatically impacted the management of gynecological cancers. In this context, we organized an event to share the results of the most significant studies, which somehow represented a paradigm shift in uterine, cervical, and ovarian cancers.
A two-days conference will give the chance to the attendances to understand the meaning of working in teams, learning from mentors and friends. High-level national and international speakers will share their expertise and will deliver inspiring talks with unique insights. The proposed topics will be presented with reference to evidence-based medicine and in accordance with the most recent national and international guidelines.
Mixed in-person and virtual interactive sessions will give the opportunity to question leading experts and be inspired by best practices from different countries.
The meeting is intended for gynecologic oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, general gynecologists, nurses, residents and physician other clinicians involved in the care of patients with gynecologic malignancies.
Two days together to examine in depth all the aspects of gynecologic oncology in a climate of friendship and thirst for knowledge
